Spring Cypress at Greenfield Lake

Pastel pleine-aire painting of cypress trees in Greenfield Lake in Wilmington, NC by Rose Ganucheau.

I suppose Greenfield Lake was once a tidal creek leading into the Cape Fear River, but a damn keeps it fresh now.  The many fingered lake is bordered by a walking path and is a profusion of azaleas and other flowers in the Spring.  I was surprised by how red the cypress trees were in springtime.  The geese are a common sight and it is a frequent roost for American Egrets.

Work:12 x 16,  Framed
