Taccoi Cypress

William Bartam was an influential explorer in the early days of Florida.  He mapped many trails, waterways, plants and wildlife.  In honor of his contributions and to commemorate the 250th anniversary of his explorations in the St. Johns County area, the St. Johns Cultural Council held a juried exhibit at the St. Johns County Administration Building through April and May.  I am please that they accepted this piece of a young cypress tree along the St. Johns River in Taccoi, FL, an area where Bartram would have spent some time.  The piece measured 20 x 30 and is archival matted and framed.

"Captured along the St. Johns River around Taccoi, FL this image showcases a scene that William Bartram would have encountered.  Silhouetted by a rainy sunset, swamp maples overshadow a young cypress with its roots submerged beneath the tanin stained river."
