Peaceful marshland: A blush of pink tinges the edge of the horizon, easing into the soft pale orange and blue sky. Forests settle with ease on the border of the marshland. A single pool of water peeks out from amidst the ripe green blades of grass, reflecting the sunlit sky, while the larger body of water shows us a glimpse of the blue sky above. The soft palette of the paint colors invokes the peacefulness of the marsh with the particular lighting of the painting. The marsh is quiet, the water smooth, and the atmosphere tranquil as I paint the landscape. Even the blades of grass are rarely stirred by a breeze. Free from stifle, the stillness of the landscape grants the painting a portrait of tranquility.
