Product Details

I've long admired lowly cattail plants for their variety, versatility, adaptability, and usefulness. Often sacrificed by developers of shorefront properties, these hearty stalwarts provide food and shelter to a wide range of mammals, amphibians, and fish. Their roots are edible, filter contaminants from fresh or salt water, and prevent erosion of water-soaked soil.

In this painting, I depict a stand of cattails on the Weir Farm pond in Ridgefield and Wilton, CT. The Weir Farm is a national historic site dedicated to J. Alden Weir, a painter in the early days of our country who hosted many American fine artists at his sprawling country estate.

This painting measures 36"w x 24"h. It may be purchased framed in natural wood floating frame that's ready-to-hang or unframed. Please allow an extra 7 to 10 days for framing.
