Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

I rarely have any idea what I'm painting as I work on a canvas. On this occasion I was listening to reggae music (the Gladiators). Only later did I realize this was a river I'd swum in aged 18 in Jamaica, unaware that it was inhabited by alligators until I saw them in the lagoon near the beach. Thus a memory became conscious in the act of painting.
A few weeks later, my nephew walked into the studio and said, "Hey, that's Alligator Ponds!"
