Just completed, the portrait of Ed Carlson, Director Emeritus of Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.

Ed Carlson, native of South Florida and Former Director of the Audubon  Society's acclaimed Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, looks and moves like the outdoorsman he is -- big, tall, soft spoken and gentlemanly.  The  Sanctuary, through Ed’s leadership, is the center of protection for  crucial wetlands constantly under pressure to yield to development.  Ed  Carlson stands firm for the last, best wood stork nesting grounds and  the watershed making human and stork existence there possible.
