Mountain Marsh Progression Painting

Mountain Marsh Progression

My son James, lives near Logan, UT and one a recent trip I took a lot of photos of the marshes there in the valley.
I know, who knew there were marshes in the dessert.

It is a stunning view.

My challenge: should I decide to accept it,
is to paint the above photo using every skill and piece of knowledge I had.
You know I can't resist a challenge!

Here's the proof!

 

Here's the finished product,
I think!

It's not signed yet,
but I "think" it's finished.

About Me

My photo
Ghent, Kentucky, United States
I'm a nature artist and I love to paint old barns, rivers and lakes, trees and fence rows. I work almost daily trying to improve my art and all that entails. I try to learn all I can from others and from the earth itself by being aware of all God has created and its beauty. You can purchase paintings by contacting me at slgraves6@gmail.com. You can also purchase through my gallery website at www.riverrungallery.com . Thank you so much for stopping by.
