The series that took me on a memory lane tour of the Caribbean sea has been completed! The last piece will be published soon. Meanwhile, I have been quite a busy bee with around the village which is finally in full spring bloom.
During the past 2 weeks, the gardens were absolutely stunning to behold with so many hues and fragrances to turn one’s head! Below is the first piece dedicated to this marvelous spring bounty: Cherry Blossoms.
Cherry Blossom is available on the new Shop on my website as a print. Have a look here
As heavy rainy clouds have been weighting on the sky over my studio all week, it was very easy to “step” into this painting and feel the warmth of the sun on my skin… wishful thinking painting is awesome! 🙂
This little painting takes me back again to the beautiful Bahamas Islands. I go back to my memories of the islands quite frequently these days… possibly as wishful thinking as the gray days of english spring are upon us.
Still, the shallow waters of Half Moon Cay that inspired this painting are an excellent subject to practice and improve my water reflection technique, which is the focus of this years work 🙂
One of the most enticing aspects of life in the tropics is the constant contact with sun and water. I find this image (inspired by one of my journeys in the Caribbean Sea) sums up the essence of this constant energy and it make me feel so at peace that I painted it 3 times in different flavors 🙂 The last two attempts in watercolor below.
