Sound to Sea - knee deep in the water somewhere

Paddled out to the marsh grass just west of the Emerald Isle bridge after taking refuge from the morning rain. It cleared up by 9 am and I had the rest of the day to stand in the knee deep tide that never seemed to go down.
I love painting 'marine' sized landscapes. The bridge was going to be a challenge, but the changing light and clouds were entertainment enough besides the occasional fishing boat. They must have though it odd, a painter standing out in the marsh. For me, it was a perfect spot. Kept me cool in the Carolina late summer heat.
It was the only painting I worked on all weekend. So it was the only one I had to show on Sunday at the exhibition.
Everyone was all set up and I added my EI bridge painting to the display for judging.
When I got the call...............................................
I don't even remember leaving the show. I didn't even know that would be the last time I spoke to my Dad. By the time I got home and pulled into the driveway, my brother called having rushed to the hospital from my call moments earlier. They had pronounced him DOA.
