Some Hours

This is #45 of my 100 painting project. It is another view from Botany Bay at Edisto Island, SC., from our visit there last spring. As we were making our way along the boardwalk that leads through the marshes and out to the beach, I looked back and noticed this grouping of grand old trees. The way the morning light was softly falling among their leaves and branches happened to catch my attention. They looked so graceful and accepting of their position there at the edge of the marshlands.

I love this one! Great composition, contrast and depth. Looks to me like the start of a grand tale - like a troll is about to wander from of the trees and down the path.

I really like the big, big contrast from the dark shadow color to the bright yellow green color.
Love the light!

Wasn't I just saying the other day how much I love your tree-filled country lanes? Bravo, Ann, I can feel the heat of the Summer day in this painting, which is a good thing because it is a cold rainy day today.

The color combination with the composition and the depth deep in to the forest area is eye catching!

I love it when walking through nature, it suddenly calls out to me! This is stunning and that it called out to you is obvious!
