The Song Of Water

The Song Of Water
Oil  8" x 6"
$100.00 + $10. s/h

I continue with my water series from our trip to Holbox Island, Yucatan, Mexico.  One day we had a very heavy rain.  That evening and the whole next day there were huge puddles on all of the sand streets.  This made for a challenging walk back to the hotel in the semi-dark after dinner!  I mentioned in a previous post that there are no cars on the island and that the streets are sand.  I would have thought that the water would just seep right trough the sand, but the drainage seemed to be an issue.  Anyway, the rain also created incredible color and wave changes in the water, of course during the storm, but the next day as well.

Love the painting and the title. Looks like margarita colors, too. :-)

It's your best water painting so far. Love the green in the middle of the painting. Also interesting that you chose to do a vertical painting of a seascape, instead of the the more common horizontal.

Debbi, thank you. I'm going to stick that "margarita" aside for another possible title!

Thank you Pattie. I always love your comments. The vertical lent itself to getting almost all of the water in from sky to sand. Just seemed to work.

Love how the painting is broken up into lively bands of color, Pam!
