Bog Reflections 16″ x 29″ Oil on Linen

This first painting is a view of a cranberry bog in late fall.  I often go walking here with our dog and enjoy watching the scene change with the seasons.  Reflections in the bog pool made this a compelling view to paint.  The wall of trees lay in shadow but offered glimpses of the light behind them.  My reference is a small 4″ x 6″ photo which provides just enough information but allows a broader interpretation of the image.

    this “new” technique of yours lends itself particularly well to wetlands.
