In 2011 I was presented with The Stan Perrot Excellence in Art Fine Arts Award for this piece.
My goal was to create an illusion for the viewer. When they would look at it from a distance, it would look like a flat paining. A subtle shadow would lure the viewer closer and thats when they would discover it is actually a photograph of a painted girl.
One of only 12 white alligators in the world, collected from deep in a Louisiana swamp. Though one might think this alligator might be albino, its not.
This leucistic creature has a bit of pigmentation around its mouth and a small bit on its tail, but what strikes you most is her piercing blue eyes.
Don't taunt the alligator until after you've crossed the creek
Dear Ocean, thank you for making us feel tiny, humble, inspired, and salty... all at the same time.
