Rising Tide

This scene is the where Poplar Avenue ends in the wetlands. The final bit often gets submerged during high tide. I did not realize it as I was painting, but the road behind me was flooding as well. After a half hour into the painting I turned around to look and saw that a good portion of the quarter mile between me and the mainland was submerged! I thought for sure that my old car was a goner..but it made it through...I washed off the salt water when I got home...and finished the painting. "whew" 8x10
