24 x 36 in
"The Marsh" early morning light was inspired by a plein air painting. In the early 20th century Irish immigrants would congregate to the south shore of Boston marshlands to collect moss from the river banks and sell. It was used to heat homes as a source of fuel. The seacoast town of Scituate became known as the Irish Riviera.
