Wetland Trees

Wetland Trees, Acrylic on Gessoboard, 6"x6", NFS

30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge - Day 22

Trying something a bit different here. We live close to Lake Champlain in northern Vermont. As with many large lakes, there are significant expanses of swamps and wetlands along the edges of the lake. So you can see through clumps of trees and grasses to areas of open water and, frequently, a line of islands or the far shore beyond - it is visually complex and endlessly fascinating. This painting is a very, very simplified view of this landscape.
