Marsh On A Cloudy Day, pastel on board by Adriana Meiss
The colorful branches of the willows in winter and the pale yellow grasses surrounding a mall parking lot were the inspiration for this painting. I imagined there must have been some open water before the mall was build... I'm not sure the water reads as such; maybe a few ripples is all it needs. In any case, I tried to make sure its color did not compete with that of the sky.
