Artist's description:

In the middle of Biscayne Bay, Miami, there are still little houses on stilts that were built as early as 1922. "Crawfish" Eddie Walker built his shack on stilts above the water in 1933, toward the end of the prohibition era, allegedly to facilitate gambling, which was legal at one mile offshore. Crawfish Eddie sold bait, beer, and crawfish chowder. Shipwrecking and channel dredging brought many people to the area and even more shacks were constructed, some by boating and fishing clubs, they were referred to as the "shack colony". It is now prohibited to build or rebuild any of these structures, so it is a bygone era. I thought I would paint a tribute to these historical, unusual houses in the beautiful bay.
