A Common Mangrove Scene

11’ x15”

Scenes like these appear commonplace but a second look may reveal interesting details like the thriving epiphyte, growing like a bouquet above the smooth texture of the rising tide.

 The water neatly divides the contrasting clusters of greens from the sinewy roots of the buta buta trees. These form the compositional elements I need.
