I enjoyed many years visiting Fort Desoto when I lived in St. Pete., but your vision takes it into another dimension entirely....a fine work!

Like this impressionist style! clear coloures and ntricate comp. And Thank you Ray for your comment! Such an original view with art of history reference.

Artist's Description

Four partially overlapping planes are in this painting. Starting from the left, they are: 1. foreground -the large limbs in the first quarter of the painting; 2. middleground, large limbs through the middle half; 3. transition to background -smaller branches - for the most part from the middle to right side; and 4. background - a sky-palmetto amalgam. This was painting during a January afternoon at Fort DeSoto Park on the Florida Gulf Coast.
