Alligator Pond is part of the Travel Series.
The Travel Series is in response to trips that I have taken. Everyone remembers different pieces of a memory through all different senses. Sometimes memories come back to me through smell, or a certain feel of the air or feel of my body. Most of the time my memory is triggered by visual pieces from a trip that pop up in my head. These are the pieces that I focus on in my paintings. It could be the mountains, the trees, the structures of the buildings or houses. Sometimes it is the way that the shadows hit the ground. To others this becomes an artistic chaotic structure, but to me it is a visual journal of the places that I have been and the things that I have discovered.
ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC PRINT
Since I can remember I have been traveling down to Florida to visit my Great Aunts and Uncles, cousins, and other family. I remember trips to the beach, long searches for shark teeth (I remember getting whole zip lock bags of them one year) and playing cards together all night long. I remember kayaking into the Myakka River State Park with my mom, dad, and sister, while my dad and I scared my mom by getting way to close. This painting reminds me of Florida and the place I used to go as well as the place my parents now own. Alligator Pond comes from all the stories and picture texts that I get from my mom and dad when they see the Alligators in the back pond.
