Here are the next two in my series of Carolina Coastal Marshland art cards. I sure do miss that warmer coastal climate, especially after the prelude to winter we experienced here this past week with our first dusting of snow. There is a saying here in the southern mountains that for every fog in August there will be a snowfall in winter. So this past August Kiddo put a bean in a jar every day there was fog. Seven beans. We removed the first bean last Friday when there was snow on the ground. One down, six to go. That doesn't seem so bad. Especially after last winter. I might be able to handle six more snowfalls. Maybe. At the very least we'll find out if that old saying is true.

Hi Ann, Wow! These are wonderful ACEOs! The colors you choose are appealing. Plus, that's a lot of landscape packed into a small size! Beautiful.

Your first one to me really captures the marshes. Reminds me of the Everglades.
