Swamp at the Tourne
I painted this last week in New Jersey. Yes, New Jersey! I’ve had my eye on this swamp for a few years now. It’s enormous. According to a woman who came hiking by, it used to be a woodland, and then beavers came along and dammed up the stream, eventually turning it into a wetland. I like it this way. So does the pileated woodpecker who was tearing chunks out of one of the dead trees.
