Glades Horizon

Glades Horizon

This oil painting (24" x 18") is a scene of The Florida Everglades depicting the arrival of a new day over the well-known "Saw-Grass Plain".


The occasional island - or hammock - contains typical
green Florida foliage of tropical bush and cabbage palms alongside the seemingly endless flat horizon. The saw-grass occasionally meets a pond where one of Florida's popular native birds - the Great White Heron - is fishing, whilst overhead - on silent
wings - the hovering gull has a similar idea as he searches for his breakfast !

Overhead, the sun gently rises in the pale, wintery-looking sky, and my choice of pastel colors reflects a coolish December day in Florida's Glades.

On center stage you might say - can be seen one of the typical smaller hammocks of land containing the two palm trees. Then, to the right - is another typical Florida tree from whose branches can be seen a goodly amount of Florida's Spanish Moss so prevalent in this area of our state.
