Peaceful Evening: On occasion, I have been struck by the abundance of the lush greenery of the lowcountry. In painting the blades of this scene stroke by stroke, I wanted to make sure to illustrate the various colors that occur naturally within the marsh. Blade by blade, the green, yellow and brown reeds came together to yield a painting where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The lavender sky blossoming above the dark green, stately trees was an astonishing sight that needed to be preserved through art. Such a sky interrupted by but one cloud represents the peacefulness of this particular scene in nature. Viewers can cast themselves into this painting and experience the harmony in nature portrayed by “Peaceful Evening.”
