Desolate Landscape

When I began this painting of the Finley Wildlife Refuge last month, it was to be a green marsh like I saw there in June. Then, I had a visitor from Canada who wanted to watch me paint. Since this was what I was working on, I resumed painting. Maybe because I was explaining my process and not paying attention to my original idea, in short order I had this apocalyptic landscape.

Well, it could just be my desolate soul but I really like this - it speaks to me much more so than a green scene would! ha ha Or maybe it's the blues in the palette you used? Yeah, that sounds like a better reason! Perhaps your Canadian friend watching influenced you in the colors, too?
