Dusk in marshland
Dusk in Marshland: Setting sunlight shimmers across the water. A gentle breeze marks the ocean with but the slightest ripples. Only one cloud floats by, passive and calm. The vacant pier emphasizes the solitude of the marshland that a visitor can use for personal reflection as he or she embraces the surrounding nature. The painting’s tame whip of the long blades of grass, unique hue of pale orange in the sky, and placid flow of water centers a viewer into the essence of a marshland setting. One of my objectives in “Dusk in Marshland” was to bring together the core elements of a marshland in a way that highlights the unique traits found in nature from day to dusk.
