The first stop on the Good Life tour was for technique and medium. The moment I walked into the museum, this collection (pictured below) caught my eye. Its brightness and fun textures were striking against the simple white of the wall behind them. Seeing this collection in person was a pleasant surprise. Having just moved to Florida, party because of the warm weather and palm trees, I was intrigued upon seeing some of the elements I associate with Florida in such a bright and cheery chroma. The picture doesn't fully capture the different textures caused by the mixes of media that Hiram Williams uses. These textures add so much more to the painting in depth, color, and movement. The middle painting specifically captures the essence of a "Swimming Alligator" that one can't fully understand unless seen in person. All seem so more real, in a loose sense of the world, and provide one with a feeling of joy upon seeing the bright and colorful depiction of Florida's finest aspect: nature.
