Back to the Lowcountry
Jul 14, 2022
Heading back to the Lowcountry. Never want to stay away too long. Time to get back home. I will be painting the southeastern coast for the next few weeks. Here is a little one. It is only 4×6 inches, but it holds a view of so much more.
“Wetlands, including swamps, marshes, and bogs, are areas of land that are saturated with moisture seasonally or permanently. Believed to be the most diverse ecosystems in the world, wetlands are home to various species of plants, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. This includes many threatened and endangered species.
In addition to wildlife habitat, wetlands act as filters to improve water quality by removing sediments and chemicals. Further, wetlands reduce flooding and recharge ground water.”
I hope you get to spend some time in a wetland soon. Breathe deep and smell all the richness going on there. Feel the breeze and enjoy what the earth is offering.
See you next week with some wet paint.
