IMG_3042“Someplace Tropical”

Acrylic on Canvas – Summer 2014

I was in a mode where I wanted to paint things that I had never seen but had only heard about or experienced in stories.  This scene was constructed from the better stories from my father-in-law of his time in South-east Asia.  So many of his memories are dark, but I wanted to create a painting full of light.  I’ve only really been to Cambodia and Thailand for tropical places with bungalows.  Neither one is fully reflected in this painting, but I used my imagination, tried to think outside of the box and let my fingers do the talking.  Perhaps I should note, that this is a finger-painting.  Regardless, I was happy with the results, and hope you enjoy it as well!
