Salt Marsh Inspiration

I hunted for images to use as inspiration for a marsh scene painting (to go in the dining room) since I'm not close enough anymore to go take my own shot. I thought I'd share them:

Awesome Place if you want a great get-away!

Aren't those beautiful?! The first is my favorite by far, but the others all over more inspiration. If I don't end up painting my own, then a "frame" is going to built for the boy's existing  art. This will be one of those things that "may" get done... if time permits. I really want to do it, because it's been a long time since I did a fine art painting, but if the last few months have taught me anything, it's that I've got to be flexible and take it a day at a time... not planning to far out in advance:)

  1. Love them all. They make me miss home so much. Oh to go crabbing or shrimping in the marsh - pure heaven! I am from Charleston, SC now land locked in North GA.

  2. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I love the first one too...but the sunset is breathtaking! xo Diana

  3. What a talent you are! If you paint a salt marsh please share!

  4. What gorgeous imagery, I love them all! Looking forward to seeing your version too!


One of the highlights of each day is hearing from my readers!
