Luminous marsh

Luminous Marsh  5 x 7 

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.

—Sydney Lanier, 1876

Private collection, Waltham, MA

Here is another version I painted of this scene.
