Sunset Cruise on the Maurice River.
Once again our River Guide was Captain Dave, a longtime "Friend of the Barn Studio." He obviously
enjoys sharing his vast knowledge of the history of the river, and its' inhabitants, starting with the
Lenni-Lenape people, and early Colonists of the Delaware Bay area.
For Pat Witt, the Maurice River and its' tributaries and marshlands and ditches and wildlife and
earthy wet smells have forever formed, and informed, her life as an artist and teacher.
We had hardly pushed off from the dock, before Pat had her sketchbook out, making rapid sketches
of her impressions of the passing wetlands and sometimes steep banks of the river.
have this week, to paint along the river.
A wonderful way to end this year's cruise on the Maurice River.
