“Intrusion”, charcoal on 9×12″ tan toned paper, 2019

Original available, matted (black) to fit 11×14″ frame

This is a sketch done en plein air in First Landing State Park and finished in the studio. It is in a low lying area where salt water intrusion has killed many Pines and Cedars. The many standing dead trees are a popular nesting and perching site for Ospreys and Eagles.
