The inspiration for this new painting was a bright spring moon rising above the salt marshes in Ipswich on a super clear night. Deep greens and blues—ebbing and flowing between the land and the sea. 5x7", oil on canvas panel.
By a world of marsh that
borders a world of sea.
Sinuous southward and sinuous
northward the shimmering band
Of the sand-beach fastens the fringe
of the marsh to the folds of the land.
