Reclamation Is Good for Wildlife and Artists

One of my college friends grew up to be a botanist and was able to make a big difference by helping to reclaim habitat along the Colorado River near Yuma. She showed me her reclamation work last fall and it was so gorgeous that I wanted to go back a spend a week there painting. So far this week of painting has eluded me but I was able to camp there last night.
The area is full of birds, especially migratory birds, who rest there while on route back north. Last night we enjoyed a full moon and a gorgeous night sky. This morning we woke to a beautiful dawn along the Colorado River which I attempted to capture in the painting below.
It turns out that reclaimation is good for wildlife and artists too.

    Love this; one can see the movement of the river; and I think I heard it as I was looking at it. I just love everything about this one.
