Home Grown Man
My son grew up in the Lowcountry, surrounded by marsh and water, palmetto trees and jasmine, the smell of salt water and the sound of mosquitoes. He's shaped by old family tales and the struggles of a community undergoing constant development. The struggle to become a man and find one's place can be challenging wherever one is. The Lowcountry is in his blood. This is the 3rd painting in the Collard Green series -- my son, standing on the cusp of manhood. The original is acrylic on birch panel and is 24" x 36". The print is 12" x 18" on high quality gloss paper.
