Winter Marsh and Mountains

6" x 8" Oil on Panel
Here's a painting I did last Saturday. The view is looking South across marshes by Utah Lake, towards the southern end of the Wasatch Mountains. There's still ice on the lake, but it's starting to open up. Mallards, shovelers, pintails and canada geese are beginning to migrate through. 

Today the warm sunlight won out over the chilly breeze so I sat on a picnic bench near the lake and did a pencil sketch. I don't care what Punxsutawney Phil says, I had a touch of Spring fever today!
