“Secret Beach (Thailand)”
Acrylic on Canvas – May 2015
Loosely based on a picture that we took on our honeymoon, this one is more of a representation of my overall memory of Secret Beach in Thailand. It was a deeply beautiful and spiritual place and the short time that I spent there left a huge lasting impression on my mind. While I only really visited the beaches in the south, the differences between the islands and the soaring scenic views are something I will never forget. In many ways it often seemed straight out of a storybook or movie and was more than I could have dreamed – though it must be said that there were also some really harsh realities there as well. Our favorite spot was a little bungalow right off a beach appropriately titled Secret Beach. With little else around a break from the typical tourist spots, this little gem was the stuff of dreams. I can understand why Thailand remains a magical place to visit and for some to live. It certainly rubbed off on me!
