TECO Plant w/Lagoon Oil/Panel 10″ X 36″ 5-’08

This is an onsite study of the TECO power plant in Apollo Beach Florida, painted from a site located to the west, which abuts Tampa Bay. I was drawn to the stark contrast between the huge coal burning plant and the pristine appearance of the lagoon.There is a huge population here, in the winter, of Manatees and diverse fish, all seeking the warm water of the outflow from the plant.
