The Egret- sold
We went painting in East Greenwich, RI last week where I started this painting.

Because you're on top of a plateau, you have an overview of the marsh and cove, which is a little unusual. It wasn't until I got home that I started to wonder, why would they ever put a landfill on the waterfront? The things we do...
