This series of work is composed of watercolor and oil paintings inspired by oysters, Salt Run Series is inspired by oysters, all hand picked by Alexander’s husband, Za, out of Salt Run, the small body of water near the St. Augustine lighthouse. After many oyster roasts with neighbors, friends, and family, Alexander set out to paint from not only the beautifully organic shaped shells, but the deep sense of community that they brought to her life. These intricate shells with their various hues of blue and gray, and the perfectly subtle gold sheen brought people together. They gave her and her family the opportunity to invite people in, to have a conversation, and to make memories last a lifetime. The Salt Run Series is just that – a representation of a life well lived in community with one another.18 x 24 80 lb. matte coated cover paper packaged in tube.
