This is my fifth entry for Leslie Saeta's 'Thirty Paintings in
Thirty Days Challenge 2015'.  For this challenge, I have
decided to do thirty small studies from my trip last September
to Martha's Vineyard.  My hope is that some of these studies
will be worked into larger paintings.

I am always drawn to marshes, and Chappaquiddick
did not disappoint me.  They are most beautiful when the tide
is starting to recede, and the water shimmers between patches
of sea grasses.

I have never been to Martha's Vineyard, but viewing your paintings of it, makes me definitely want to see it in person. I love marshes for the animal habitat and life it provides. The color in this painting is fantastic!

Bonjour chère amie,

Je vous présente tous mes bons voeux pour 2015. Que ces 365 jours soient remplis de petits et grands bonheurs.

Toutes mes félicitations pour votre participation à ce beau challenge.
La peinture de ce jour est remplie de quiétude et j'aime le contraste de cette eau qui joue avec le parterre.

Gros bisous ♡

Beautiful! A good sense of depth and a perfect composition. This would be great worked up into a larger piece.
