Salt Marsh Series #2

Morning Wander
16x20 acrylic on stretched canvas
I took the photo for this painting on the same day that I took the photo for the first painting in this Salt Marsh Series. I found this swan and her two babies in the salt marsh across from Rye Beach, NH.  They didn't seem to mind me being there, snapping pics.  I love looking at this salt marsh when I drive north up the coast from Hampton.  At times, it is a breathtaking sight, with thousands of beautiful water lilies, as far as you can see.  I posted a pic of such a scene last summer, with two beautiful swans facing each other.  That photo will end up being a reference for one of the paintings in this series as well.
