My friend, Donna Vines, and I went on a photo shoot one evening, out to the Viera wetlands. The wetlands is home to hundreds of species of waterbirds and assorted creepy crawlies like snakes and gators. Thankfully, we only saw birds. Thankfully, also, we saw a stunning sunet!
So, this painting is probably not correct, with the glow from the sun pulling your eye out of the painting, but somehow, I still liked it. I think the darkness provides enough interest to pull your eye back and through the painting.
