"The Final Outpost" is a monochromatic seascape photographed near Bahia Honda State Park in the Florida Keys. An outpost is a remote place, often a defensive location or lookout for dangers. In this scene the outpost has multiple contexts. The tree is initially seen as an outpost looking out to sea as ominous clouds foretell of something unsettling. The trunk of the tree appears almost as a black bolt of lightning coming from the dark cloud above striking the outpost. Then off in the distance a boat is seen heading out to sea and we begin to feel the trepidation of the outpost at sea. One can sense the vulnerability when severe storms approach whether on land or at sea. The artwork is a 30? x 45? fine art print on metallic paper face mounted on 1/4 inch acrylic.
"The Path Less Traveled" is a 30" x 45" monochromatic photograph taken near the deserted railroad close to Bahia Honda Key in the Florida Keys. The railroad was first built by Henry Flagler to connect New York to Key West in the early 1900's. After a devastating hurricane in the 1930's the railroad was never rebuilt. Remnants of the railroad and abandoned bridges parallel the new Overseas Highway. This image is a timeless remnant of the past. There is a sense of solitude, romance, and nostalgia evoked by the subtle silver tones of water, sand, sky and leaves contrasted by bold black tones in the bark of the solitary tree. The white sand path draws the viewer into the scene and toward the tree majestically standing atop of the sand dune. The viewer is left to imagine what lies over the dune. The scene is reminiscent of the primitive Florida that Henry Flagler and his associates fell in love with compelling him to build the "greatest railroad the world had ever seen". The artwork is a 30" x 45" fine art print on metallic paper face mounted on 1/4 inch acrylic.
Florida in a nostalgic and timeless mood.
