Shoreline, Daily Painting by Fawn

5 x 7 inches
Acrylic on hardboard

Went back to lock G-36 yesterday (which is still closed due to lack of water). It was cool and breezy in the morning, and I wanted to capture the cool, blueish shadows in the rocks. The egrets were all around, so I added one here on the shore.

The water in the rim canal around the levee is getting very full. The water in the lake is still very low. They are not opening up the locks and letting the water flow because all of the canals and creeks will stay too low. I guess they figure people can at least get their boats in the water this way.

It is sad to see what was once a grand wetland with tons of wildlife shrink away to dry land. Lake Okeechobee seems to be disappearing.

To purchase this one-of-a-kind original, go to MY GALLERY and click on this image (available tomorrow) or email me.

This painting is superb, it looks like a big one, hard to believe its a 5 x 7. You might want to paint it big too. Its scary about the lake, we have water restrictions here even with all the rain we have gotten.

Thanks both of you.
I may do it large, I really got into the rocks and pebbles.
