Mud (more drowned lands of Saeftinghe)

Again a painting from this endlessly inspiring tidal estuary landscape "Saeftinge"near the Belgian border. In this case painted in commission for someone who as a geologist has been fascinated by mud all his working life. He would probably use the term "tidal sediments" or such, but I think the word "mud" adds an essential dimension to this earth-scape that neither scientific understanding of the processes involved, or my interpretation of the satellite images can convey. Mud is beautiful.
