A witty title for a painting created in memory of snorkeling in Bonaire on the beach in front of our honeymoon cottage.
Painting style is an evolution combining Impressionist painters “Spirit of Place” and Contemporary applications like Jackson Pollock's "targeted" paint technique. Layers of color create visual and tactile dimension. The image can be viewed as representational or abstract depending on the viewers’ distance from the imagery. At first glance, the style is loose and whimsical, yet the painting yields detail and depth.
