Marsh Song

Here is #56 of my 100 painting project. It is a view of one of the marshy areas surrounding Botany Bay on Edisto Island, SC. It is such a serene place to visit, unspoiled by development and with a very rich history. Many of my paintings have been inspired by this place, and I suspect there will be more. (Ironically, when looking for a good link to more information about Botany Bay, the best one I could find features a photo that looks to be taken in the same location as my painting above. So now you have to check that out!)

How tranquil this looks - nice work, Ann.

I had no idea there was a Botany Bay in the USA as well as Aus - I learn so much through blogging!

This is beautiful Ann! It's pretty much what I had in mind when I was experiencing the japanese tea ceremony for the first time on Friday ^^ it's all about transquility and peacefulness

Love the colors in this. I was surprised when I saw how small it is, because it has such presence.
