This pastel was painted en plein air on Narrow's Island, CT. Narrow's Island is one of hundreds that dot the Connecticut coast in a magical place called the Thimble Islands. Pink sparkly granite outcrops are everywhere creating the foundation for summer homes, egrets, herons, oyster catchers, and other coastal wildlife.
I sat for hours studying this wonderful stretch of marshland where watching the tide come in or out is a true 're-boot' of self. I didn't stand, as I typically do, at my easel, but sat on granite on one side while I painted it on the other. The colors of the day subtly changed and the hours flew by unnoticed by me.
The painting measures 8" x 10".
