This is a small "postcard" painting, 5" x 7". The tower in the foreground belongs to the Unitarian Church on Archdale Street in Charleston, SC. The white steeple of St. John's Lutheran Church is seen farther back. The churches each have their own graveyards, with some markers dating back to the 1700s!
This marsh is part of the Stono River, near Charleston. In the winter, the marsh grass turns a golden color. The trees are mainly tall southern pines. The colors in this painting are as rich as those in Marsh in Winter-- they just don't show up that way in the photo.
