Coastal Morning – Now on eBay

It has been so beautiful here the last couple of mornings. We’ve been able to eat breakfast on our back porch while watching all of the resident and migratory birds on Senkarik Pond. This morning Jack and I began a trip down memory lane, talking about all the times we’ve lived near the ocean and enjoyed the waterfowl on the coastal marshes. We’ve experienced these delightful areas in Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and California. All are amazingly beautiful.

He asked, “Remember all the mornings we would get up early and watch the sunrise? In my mind’s eye I can see the vibrant color in the clouds and the reflections on the still water as if it were yesterday. Why don’t you share that serene start of the day with your eBay collectors?” So that’s exactly what I’m painting today, a coastal marsh in the early morning. Something a little different from my usual Architecture and Flowers! After sketching up the basics on the canvas with a thin oil wash I start painting the sky filled with sun washed clouds.

The most distant islands, palms and grasses are blocked in cooler so they will recede. Then the water is painted and the reflections pulled into the wet paint. Moving forward the middle group of palms is painted warmer and darker to make them appear closer.

Reds, rusts and yellow greens are added to the marsh grass in the foreground. The distant grasses and trees really fall back now. The Grass, Saw Palmetto, Palms and their reflections in the front right corner provide a dark mass, setting the stage to highlight the Great White Egret.

There is something magical about seeing the glow of sunrise light up the landscape and reflect into the calm water. The silence broken only by the whispering wings of a Great White Egret rising from the tall marsh grass. Experience the magic of a Coastal Morning every time you glance at it on the wall of your home or office.
