Shoreline, Plein Air Painting
5 x 7 inches
Acrylic on hardboardNOT AVAILABLE
Went back to lock G-36 yesterday (which is still closed due to lack of water). It was cool and breezy in the morning, and I wanted to capture the cool, blueish shadows in the rocks. The egrets were all around, so I added one here on the shore.
The water in the rim canal around the levee is getting very full. The water in the lake is still very low. They are not opening up the locks and letting the water flow because all of the canals and creeks will stay too low. I guess they figure people can at least get their boats in the water this way.
It is sad to see what was once a grand wetland with tons of wildlife shrink away to dry land. Lake Okeechobee seems to be disappearing.
