The 'Swamp' is actually a very old woodland that's home to some unique species of plants and critters. Being there is like going back thousands of years in time. I've been going there for many, many years. I'm thinking of doing a series of paintings of the different aspects of Bergen Swamp, starting with this recent painting and the one called 'Edge of the Forest' which is partially shown in this blog header picture.
I should have more paintings to ad soon.
