Everglades

I recently travelled to New Orleans with my mom, right before the pandemic took over, and we had the most amazing day exploring the Barataria Bayou with Airboat Adventures Swamp Tours. I finally got to see the wistful beauty of Spanish moss, alligators in their natural habitat, and experience an airboat ride. Man those boats can fly! I wish I could say this painting was inspired by that trip, but I actually completed ‘Everglades’ back in 2013, when this adventure was just a dream. I also realize the Everglades are in Florida, not Louisiana, but I would happily hop on a fan boat to explore them both, and even considered renaming this piece to ‘Bayou’ after my trip.

Everglades is an 12x24" acrylic and ink painting on a 1" thick canvas, and does not come framed.

Nautical art has been a long established motif which for many was used to convey the beauty of their surroundings or the dramatic hardships of a sailor’s life. In my current series, I'm attempting to evoke the romantic gesture of transition, a theme found commonly thread through so many nautical compositions, almost creating a dreamlike state. To help accentuate this abstract upheaval often felt during transit, I've taken inspiration from J. M.W. Turner to develop my gestural painting style, while grounding the seascapes, by adding detailed illustrations of ships from both historical and fictional seafaring tales.
