Tidal Marsh, Douglastown

Aquarelle (watercolor) on paper, 12x18

The first time Heather and I drove by this tidal marsh, I was enchanted. But it was too late in the day to start another painting, and so we went past it. I was out of sorts at having to leave this gorgeous site behind. 

But we stayed close enough that, the next day, we went back. And as the afternoon fell toward dusk, we found the marsh, and were enchanted again. We painted together, at either end of the van - and these are our pieces. 

It's a beautiful place here, the Gaspe. The sky is huge, the water clear, and the people friendly and kind. It feels like it would be a great home.
