Milltail Creek
Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge
Dare County, NC

This is one of my favorite images of Milltail Creek. It reminds me of the French Impressionists – bright colors, bold strokes, a simple subject, not even a full landscape. It reminds me also of paintings by the remarkable Elizabeth Bradford.

Bradford’s work is full of sinuous reflections and lush curves. Rather than vast landscapes, she focuses on intimate portraits of bald cypress stumps and palmetto palms, pine needs and Spanish moss, swamps and wetlands and slowly flowing water. Her work seems an unlikely cross-pollination of Van Gogh and Peter Max but made uniquely her own.

More than any other artist I know, she captures the sense of place of the Carolina coastal plains wetlands.
