I'm dreaming of spring, and visualizing the grass greening up on the marsh. This is a view of Hog Island next to Crane's Beach in Ipswich, at one of many spots where the sea flows through the marsh at low tide. Without even realizing it, I used a similar rich and saturated color pallet as I did in two paintings I made last year. Clearly I love colors, and have been influenced by Fauvism—the Wild beasts! And no doubt this is because I am craving some color in our dreary, early spring landscape. When will spring really arrive?
