Broad Creek won my heart.

Broad Creek along Muddy Hole Road, Tyaskin, MD 12″ x 16″ oil painting en plein air

This was the view of marsh grass I dreamed of painting as I drove down to Maryland last week.  Pretty typical, nothing surprising, just simply beautiful, a scene that invites the eye to follow the path of the twisting creek and explore the nooks and crannies of marsh grasses along the way.  It is stunningly beautiful in the early morning and the late afternoon.  I will return to this favorite spot in October.

Painting: oil painting, en plein air, painted over a wash of permanent mauve that acted as an underpainting.
