a view through the trees

This is a study for a larger painting that I am about to begin.  Its a view out onto the marsh through a break in the trees.  I love the overgrown feeling of the woods at the edge of the marsh and the spanish moss dripping from every available limb. I like the way the dark cool trees frame the glowing marsh beyond.  The best thing about it....no mosquitoes to swat at!
