Description A shy marsh wren perches amid snow dusted cat tails and leaves in the winter marsh. These little birds stay in some areas all winter and are more often heard than seen.This watercolor painting has a realistic foreground with an illusion of detail set against a soft abstracted background.The subject and style offers many decor possibilities for anyone who enjoys nature and the environment. This type of painting my collectors often call 'hidden bird' art because the shy bird is not the first thing you see, but, as in nature, it only shows when you look for a minute.
