I have traveled to far away places in search of ideas and inspiration for my paintings. For this one, I can jump in my car on any day and drive for about a half hour … The atmosphere is a contrast of bright sunlight and shadows from the rapidly building dark clouds. The winds over the marshland are picking up with the approaching ominous storm. For the crane, only time for a quick snack as he senses the danger and takes off for safer grounds.
