Beautiful painting. The composition, the brushstrokes and the harmony of color are wonderful!

Thanks D!
I held the thought about this painting for several years- and then it just tumbled out. The image is from a day trip I took with my son and his classmates 10 years ago to a small island somewhere in south Louisiana, where the kids planted cypress trees to replenish the wetlands and also had fun searching for aquatic life.

Ooh, I like this night scene. This brings out memories of childhood with friends and moonlit adventures.

Thanks, Rob!
Nocturnes are so much fun. They 're on a different wavelength that's really enjoyable from time to time.
