Peaceful Marsh: As I watched the sun dip behind the trees in the distance, I was filled with tranquility and contentment. Immersing oneself in nature can be refreshing and centering. The purpose of this particular painting is to portray these emotions to the viewer through the use of nature. The way the colors splash across the sky is always unique in nature, but is especially notable when the sky is doubled in the water reflection below, as seen in the painting. The grass in this section of the marshland stands in structure, neat borders that create a waterway extending towards the sea. The structure of the marsh grass contrasted with the spontaneity of color implies an order to nature that can give the viewer a feeling of calm and collectedness know that there is a balance in nature.
