This painting was inspired by a trip to a small beach in the Florida Keys as I watched my daughter exploring a small mangrove forest adjoining the beach. She became lost in an inner world. I am interested in how people, especially children, experience and connect with the natural world. I wonder how important the environment will become in our children's lives, and the lives of their children.
This work is painted in acrylic (underlayers) and water-based oil paint (top layers), on board which is mounted to a sturdy wooden support frame (so image stands proud of the wall). The paint has a soft sheen and rich colour. It can be hung unframed (edges painted white).
