August Marsh One


15x19 mixed media on paper. I think this piece is relaxing. I got the idea for this after riding in the Rancho Penasquitos Preserve in San Diego County. Hope you like it.

Beautiful! I love the way you have the expressiveness in the foreground while the overall tone of the piece is so serene.

Thak you Linda! I am so glad that you feel the serenity in this piece. I do these when I want to enjoy some peaceful time, after a hectic day! My other abstracts, especially the cityscapes, are more of a puzzle for me and take more mental energy! I work with horses everyday, so sometimes I am a bit too tired for them! Plus, I am getting older! HA!
