Traveling to Beaufort, South Carolina, one crosses several bridges and a lovely marsh. It never fails to take my breath away. It's calming beauty is soothing. In this piece I worked to capture that moment. I applied paint with gusto so it is very thick and textural. 

This piece is on gallery wrapped linen with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.
