When I arrived at the end of the trail from South End Road to the view of the eagles nest, I was smitten by the contrasting colors of long morning shadows reaching across the marsh to a light fog bank along the opposing edge of woods. I worked on the painting long after the ephemeral effects dissipated but I think it retained some of the first moment’s impression.
