Dark Marsh and Wild Iris

After painting on Block Island for several days....sunny skies and blue seas....I wanted to go to a dark place, and when it started to rain one afternoon   I found myself under the boughs of a tree, totally enjoying this wonderful scene with no sea or sky in sight.....oil on canvas 30x24"

Looking East from Center Road Block Island

Last week  I spent painting on Block Island . On this particular day it was clear and sunny and this distant view just grabbed me...You can learn so much by just looking...All those years I have traveled down this road and now I have stopped and looked hard at what is really going on there.... a real pleasure...oil on canvas  20x30"
