When I was in Canada this summer my neighbor told me I should visit the Beaubassin Research Station located on the Tantramar Marsh along the shores of the Bay of Fundy, and used mainly for research on wetlands and waterfowl.

I'm an avid birder, and I've always loved salt marshes. The Tantramar has long been a favorite place of mine, but I had never seen the section where the Beaubassin station is located - a large white house located far out on the marsh. I went out there a number of times and loved looking at the marsh and the sky and the various birds.

It just seemed like a natural for a painting of some sort, so this is the one I came up with, of the long road going through the marsh out to the Research Station standing all alone and far from anyone.

Done on 9x12 Art Spectrum Colourfix, various pastels.
