"Tide Melts Snow"

“Tide Melts Snow”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

Snow came in during the night. By morning everything was covered by 4″ of white. Afternoon and the high tide melted all snow off of the marsh grasses. The island and lands all around were still laden with snow, but the bare naked marsh added an eerie dimension…
