Fire Ants

I remember my first family vacation to Florida when I was just a kid (10 yrs old). We actually camped at Fort Pickens State Park on Santa Rosa Island. While there, I exploded the island, fishing, hiking the beach, and investigating new creatures. It was very exciting to me because this was my first time to the sea. One morning, I came upon a very large ant hill and saw many ants going in and out. Even though I was a little kid, my fifth sense told me that I should not disturb them. Lucky for me, because now I believe they were fire ants. You know, it's funny when you're a kid and you're fifth sense tells you not to do something and you listen. That wasn't always the case for me, but for that time it was.  
Any way, I have fond memories of Santa Rosa Island, so I painted this decor map of the area. If you look closely, you may see a mermaid near Gulf Breeze and a few fish around other areas. I like to hide things in the water of my paintings. Checkout my website at www.leolakes.com for more beautiful river, lake and bay art. Great for the beach house or gifts. Many sizes to choose from and comes on canvas.
