    Description

    At the end of Long Boat Key, Florida, the effect of wind and water is seen in the exposed roots of shore plants clinging to the edge.  The beach and vegetation struggle to survive together.  But time and tide work against them both.  Change happens.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    This really speaks to me. Well done!

    Just an amazing work of art.

    Amazing watercolor.

    Beautiful, can feel the quiet and almost a cricket.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.
