"DRAGONFLY MORNING"

In Newport Beach there is this place called "Back Bay".  Most everyone just drives by and glance over at it, after all, we are in such a rush to maybe stop and look.   I parked my car and walk down to the water, sat and let my mind soften as I drift into the quiet ripples of a dragonfly morning.  This is a 6x6inch original oil painting on a varnished wooden box with no framing required: $130

Lovely peaceful painting. I especially like the soft grasses catching the light and gently reflected in the water.

I love this...reminds me a lot of the Bombay wildlife refuge in Delaware. Love the water and how you have the sun-touched grasslands and the lovely dark shadows beneath them.

A place I should perhaps visit and I am so attracted to marshlands and wetlands..
