Solitary Here

This is #47 of my 100 painting project, a scene from Botany Bay at Edisto Island, SC. I was taken with this tree, or is it two trees, standing alone out in the marsh. Trees can exhibit such dignity and grace. All the more noticeable when out on their own, without the company of others for security.

I love what John F. Carlson had to say about trees:
"It is curious how one's feelings about trees change in proportion to one's appreciation of their importance and dignity as live beings. Trees are individual beings: they can be comic, heroic, tragic to the sensitive, practiced eye of the landscape artist."

I love the sky and clouds in this one, as well a the way you handled the leaves in the trees. I really like the Carlson quote, too.
