“Beginning as a research trip early one misty morning in the heart of the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary...
The perspective has you looking in and also looking down: I didn't realize this was happening until I had the piece penciled out and I had started painting! The design was developed using hundreds of pictures I took. The long & dramatic shadows from the sun penetrating the Cypress trees I thought became quite an attention-grabbing element.”   -Peter R. Gerbert

This painting is dedicated to my friend Mr. Eric Draper (Executive Director, Audubon Florida) for his wisdom and unrelenting determination to protect Florida's birds and their increasingly delicate habitats. I used some comments from him for the initial idea for this painting and for the title.”  -Peter R. Gerbert

Work in progress...

Late in 2015, the work-in-progress won an Award of Excellence at the Citrus County Fine Art Festival and a First Place Painting blue ribbon at the Homosassa Arts, Crafts & Seafood Festival. Everyone seemed to love the "unfinished look," going from extreme realism to pencil.
