Everglades Mangrove Creek

Mangrove Creek
28 x 22 Oil on Canvas

I will be the featured artist at the Island Art Association for February so am readying some of my latest series of paintings for the show.  This series mostly focuses on plants in the Florida landscape.  While staying in Key Largo for a couple of nights we toured the mangrove creeks on the bay and I was fascinated by all the life in the water at the base of those roots.   This painting was exploring the feeling of that water and the darkness in the interior of that mangrove stand.
