Swamp, 24 x 30 inches, oil on canvas, 2022, painting of oasis with alligators and purplish pinkish sky, all covered with pattern of arcs in different colors

Swamp, 24 x 30 inches, oil on canvas, 2022. The alligators are inspired by artwork I made in Lisbon in a month-long artist residency last fall. I focused on animals found in traditional Portuguese art (blue and white tiles, puppets, ceramics) and made my own versions.
