Fort Desoto is located at the mouth of Tampa Bay. Not long after I did this painting, the park department cut down all the pine trees on the island. They are considered a non native tree and somewhat of a nuisance because they have a shallow root system but I think they are extremely handsome trees. The addition of the Egret flying towards the center of the painting added a touch of life.
