Old Pilings with Dancers

by on Oct.20, 2014, under Oil Painting, Plein Air

A couple of weeks ago our plein air group met at a spot near Isthmus Slough. We traveled a couple of miles up the slough toward Green Acres. The location was quite void of visual stimulus with quiet waters, low tide, small forest and bushes across the way, and some shop buildings here and there.

But there was one area near the bank where once a dock had existed and the only thing left of it were some pilings with bent, rusty metal fasteners & pegs still attached. Plus, the low tide exposed a piling shaped as a pencil. How it stood baffled me. We visited the place twice and each time I did the same piling theme with one from a distance and the other closer.
