River and Palms Fine Art Glass Pendant Necklace

This is a reproduction of my original painting "Down River From Deep Hole." Deep Hole is an area in Myakka River State Park which is right down the road from where I live. As you walk deep in the woods you arrive upon an open plain with a huge lake. This is one of the deepest fresh water lakes in Florida...and it's full of alligators, they are everywhere. Needless to say I painted far from the area where I was able to depict this beautiful area. The original image is already in private collection!

I knelt down
at the edge of the water,
and if the white birds standing
in the tops of the trees whistled any warning
I didn't understand,
I drank up to the very moment it came
crashing toward me,
its tail flailing
like a bundle of swords,
slashing the grass,
and the inside of its cradle-shaped mouth
gaping,
and rimmed with teeth--
and that's how I almost died
of foolishness in beautiful Florida.

---from "Alligator Poem" by Mary Oliver
