Red Seaweed

On our trip to Alaska I was rather surprised to find among the thick carpet of mosses a piece of red seaweed. There is something similar in the texture of seaweed and driftwood. Perhaps it is that both have been softened by the sea. Varnish on this painting has not made for a good photograph, especially in the upper left corner. The colors are far richer than they appear here.
