Do you gather?

I just finished my first painting in 2010.  While walking through conservation land, there was a beautiful fresh water stream flowing through the marshes.  Here is my take on the stream with moss growing on the top of the water.

I will be posting this painting on gather as well.  Thank you for viewing.


  1. Marshes are very important in regeneration of clear water in lakes and ponds. The conservationist in the Clear Lake area of California started buying up the former marsh areas around the Lake and returning the lands to marshland. Within a few years the effects were noticeable in reducing the algae in the Lake.

  2. This is really a beautiful painting. We just spent a weekend touring the Everglades, and I always love to teach my boys about the importance of wetland.

  3. Beautiful painting dd! I love moss and you've painted that soft green growth well!

    Yes, I do Gather!

    And yes, I do blog!

  4. Nicely done. I haven't seen a (real) marsh for nearly thirty years.
