Shepard's Lake, Oil on board, 10x10
©Colette Martin WaiteThis is a painting of Shepards Lake up in the Mobile Delta.
Early summer this year, my friends Frank and Marion took me in their boat up in the Mobile Delta river system. We had so much rain this spring the water was very high. Early in the morning as we explored the backwaters we were amazed at the stillness of the water.
The shoreline was invisible and we could not tell where the trees stopped and the water began.
One of those magical moments.
