Line and Shadow, Guilford

There's a road that extends out from Route 1 (the east coast's counterpart to Highway 1 on the west) in Guilford toward the water where, at the end, are all kinds of visual stimuli for the kind of thing I do. I have my mother-in-law, Ann Dumark, to thank for knowing about this place and taking me out there for a photo session not long ago. I've painted several things from that hour or so out there near the water.
You see in this picture a little glimpse of a marsh, which are sometimes featured in my paintings. We happen to be lucky enough to be in marsh country. It's one of the most beautiful things about living in Southern Connecticut. I never saw anything like them in all my 47 years in California.
