Red Mangroves

I worked on these 2 oil paintings consecutively which was fun. I love to paint the long aerial roots of the red mangrove, especially when the river is calm and the reflections are quite striking. Mangroves provide a haven and nursery for a myriad of aquatic babies until they are old enough to venture out into open waters. They also are instrumental in the protection our shorelines from erosion during storms.
