Two more from the Marsh

Purple Distance in the Marsh, 6 x 6 inches, oil.

Last Light, 6 x 6 inches, oil.

Here are two more to continue the series from the previous post. These early evenings with warm weather make painting a true pleasure. Again, I like the color harmony I found in the second painting here, with the yellow/purple contrasting with the orange in the midground reeds. As always, the loveliest part of the evening is not on the canvas--an egret lifting ponderous, light-soaked wings over the reeds and water.

I love this series. The thick paint, rich color, and simplicity of the image, yet telling quite a story.
Great work
