Anclote Key Lighthouse, Anclote Key State Park, FL
My art “Invasive Species” of Anclote Key Lighthouse is a visual story about the dangers of exotics to Florida’s nature habitat. When I painted the lighthouse I recalled the signs along the Anclote Keys’ nature trail. They warned that Florida’s natural habitat was being endangered by invasive erotics. This inspired me to used green in the painting to symbolize Florida’s lush natural habitat and to add a few native palms trees that try to protect the lighthouse from the exotics.
