En Plein Air: Harns Marsh, Lehigh Acres, FL

This morning I went to Harns Marsh Preserves for the first time. Even though I live in Lehigh, not till recently did I hear about this place. It is a quiet place for fishing and bird watching. When I got there, there were two fishermen. They caught some tilapia. Later a Finnish American Photographer Rauno Teravainen came with his camera. Judging by the beautiful picture on his card, he must be a great photographer.

The whole painting took only an hour and a half, not including the setting up time. The marsh presented its beauty in natural simplicity. Hope I did her justice.
