Next oil pastel is a painting of salt marshes. Where I live in Florida there are many salt marshes, and where I spent summer vacation in Canada for 40+ years there were lots of salt marshes too. Despite the distance in miles they look very similar.
So the embarrassing thing is that I found this reference photo printed out, and I have no clue where is is! I don’t even recognize it. Florida? Canada? I have no idea. LOL.
