Sunset at Marshland
Sunset at Marshland: On one memorable trip to the marshland, I was fortunate enough to see the last moments of sunlight illuminate the dynamic coloring of the marshland. Both the grass and its reflection in the water held a spectrum of hues interwoven into the landscape, as I emulated in the painting. Towards the top of the painting, viewers can see the night sky drawing closer to the grass, soil and waters of the marsh. The cool colors of the marsh and darkening sky in the painting call attention to the remaining rays of setting sun. The implication of a quickly setting sun invites the viewer to enjoy the natural elements of the painting as though they had but mere moments with the day.
