Nisqually Delta

The best place to photograph the Nisqually delta is on the Interstate overpass with cars whizzing by and no place to pull over. So I took a very blurry picture while we were zooming down the road and played with it a lot in Photoshop  before I used it as the basis for this painting.  This is a favorite view of a favorite spot.  The tidal flow in the delta had been diked for about a century and the area used as a dairy farm.  Recent restoration of the delta removed the dikes and a much larger area is now marshland.
