Artist's Description

The green and white jail like stripes surrounded the lighthouse looking chimney. The brackish puddle of scum stands awkwardly still, as it always has. This dead place is more alive than most cities. Skyscrapers have yet to find their way into this secret humbling land. The smell of muddy water and salt is what brings me to my home away from home every year.
This is the place where I journeyed from childhood to adulthood. From the red and white grocery store to the only stop light for 30 miles the stale air and straight roads have made me the person I am today. The father-son hunting trips are always well remembered. Eating oysters and having the occasional brew from time to time is how we spend our nights. But the days always began before the sun decided to show it’s lovely face. We were packed and ready to go by four in the morning. You can’t risk letting the illumination of the sky expose you to the wildlife. The bitter January mornings, where I could sit and observe the water turn to ice right before my eyes were breath taking. I remember stepping into the flooded cornfields and feeling the water surround me, while the waders kept me dry. At eight years old in twenty-three degree weather it was my job to arrange the duck decoys before daybreak.
The trees reflect off the glass like water. This reminds of how when I was small I want to be just like my father, in every single way. The tarnish on the stone that embraces this building resembling the mark the place as placed upon me. So many memories have been shared and made in this place.
