Morning Marsh

This painting is just behind Plein Air Judy. On our Louisiana trip, we visited the site of a house that had been swept away by Ike, leaving the 2 storey deck behind. I painted Judy from beneath it one afternoon. This painting was done from the top of the deck the next day, looking out over the marsh right after sunrise.
I was painting so small because of my frozen shoulder (this is 6x6), but I wanted to convey the vastness of the scene in spite of the limited canvas dimensions. Painting tiny is pretty tricky; it's hard to stay expressive. 
Anyway, this was a beautiful morning and I hope you enjoy this tiny glimpse of it. (This painting was selected for the first 6-Inch Squared Show at the Higbee Gallery in California.)
