Heron in the marsh at Edisto Island
Pastel on paper
For several years my sister and I have taken trips to Edisto Island. We first learned of the Island as part of our family story. We have ancestors who settled on this remote island going back to the early 1600's. We first went there to research our history on the island. It is a beautiful island. Very remote. We started going there for the lovely beach and warm climate in October. The reference photo of this painting one I took while out for a walk one day. This was taken on a side road, close to the ocean in the tidal marsh. This is a repost- I was looking back at this blog and thought I would share this again.
