Cypress Pond

It’s been a while since my last piece but this one took a while longer to do.

The painting is about any cypress lake or pond in Florida where the main predator is man and the one who has the most problem sharing this beautiful place with its other occupants. Alligators and Osprey’s do not seem to have a problem getting along and sharing the resources. When man gets involved he often must make it clear that he is the dominant predator and eliminate any competition. Let’s hope that someday he learns to share.

The painting is 40” round.
