Birth of the Manasquan River

Since moving to the Jersey Shore in July, I have been in awe of the amazing sunsets that linger over the headwaters of the Manasquan river. One evening as my husband and I were walking in our new neighborhood, we came upon a beautiful view at the end of a cul-de-sac. The setting sun was reflected in a pool of water among lavender tinted marsh grasses. Distant trees framed the glowing sky. I instantly knew this would be a painting - my first inspiration since relocating!

The Source”  Oil on Canvas  18”H x 24”W  $980

The focal point of “The Source” is the midsection where the glowing lavenders of the marsh grasses are contrasted against the dark banks of trees along the horizon and the bright pinks of the sky with its reflection. I softened the marsh grasses in the foreground and added foliage to provide perspective.
