return to Smith and Bybee Wetlands - fourteenth in an erstwhile series

4 March 2011
14" x 20", acrylic on paper
Back in October 2010 I posted a number of paintings of the Smith and Bybee Wetlands.  I also did a another version of number eleven in February (posted in March).  "Return to Smith and Bybee Wetlands" rather sounds like a bad sequel to a made-for-tv movie...
