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.

Back to the Lowcountry -  Michel McNinch, Painter
“A Little Lowcountry,” 4×6, $125 framed

“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.

Michel

    Looking forward to seeing your upcoming paintings of the Lowcountry. Paddle boarding is my favorite way to enjoy a wetland!
