"Efflorescence Lagoon"

This creation was made using acrylic paint on canvas.

This rather large painting depicts a lagoon with hints of Efflorescence.

Efflorescence. (ěf'lə-rěs'əns) A whitish, powdery deposit on the surface

of rocks or soil in dry regions. It is formed as mineral-rich water rises

to the surface through capillary action and then evaporates. 

Efflorescence usually consists of gypsum, salt, or calcite.
