Afternoon Sky in Fredricksted USVI

Sitting on the beach there is a long cloud formation that has been hiding the sun...but now the intense light is revealed and all is well...I see so many colors in the water and sky it all becomes abstract movement...a glorious afternoon swimming and then I get to paint! St Croix is as beautiful as ever...Watercolor gouache 11x14"

St Croix Afternoon. Carambola

It took me   a while to figure out how to blog on an iPad.   Here I am in my kind of Paradise..... Water ....warm tropical air that smells of the sea...if this painting looks strange that is because it is....sort of abstract....waves rocks all creating interesting colors and shapes....hopefully more to come...watercolor.  11x14".
