Dana Morris 2004 Christmas Card: Winter vista, Saltmarsh in Tiverton Rhode Island
This view of the saltmarsh overlooks Narragansett Bay in Tiverton Rhode Island. The marsh is covered in ice, as is the bay beyond the stand of trees. This is an image close to a friends home, one that I had driven by for years before I decided to make an illustration of it. I'm pleased with the way the composition leads the eye from the foreground to the distant hills across the bay. There is a tranquility to this image, and it reminds me of the quiet of a winter scene, the air still, the sound of the ice cracking in the cold.
