This work was inspired by a trip to Virginia's Eastern Shore in the fall season, I'm reminded yet again how much I love the marshes. There's so much going on with the grasses, tidal flow of water, wildlife above and below the surface, and big sky. So many layers of paint, then the fun of pulling the different colors into each other vertically, horizontally, and angled make this piece a fun challenge. It involves frequently turning the cradled panel over and side to side. I think what I love the best about this process are the unexpected surprises that show up when pulling the paint around that add so much to the piece." --Jenny Traynham
