Things are still keeping me busy here so I pulled an image from our trip to Edisto Island last spring as inspiration for this pastel drawing. The salt marshes there are lovely and mysterious. I like the textures and colors of the grasses, and the gnarled, weathered trees, all against that still blue water. Little spots like this that look like nothing is going on are probably actually teeming with life just below the surface.
