Minto Brown Tangle

                                                            watercolor on Yupo 12x9

 We went down to Salem yesterday and had lunch with John`s family and then on to Minto Brown Island. It was a normal, partly gloomy, early winter day and absolutely stunning. The entire park is a flood plain with sloughs, ponds, rivulets and swamps everywhere. All with beautiful, surprising color. In the muted light it had such a soulful quality. Take a look;

I like your painting. The white on the tree, and the foreground green growing things, help to round out successfully what otherwise might have have been a "sorta something" painting.

Thanks for the photos, also. You've found more variety of color for your art than most of the real photos showed.

Nice painting and photos. I recognize that last shot. Such a beautiful place.
