Still beautiful, the Caribbean exposed.

Even while preparing for Grenada's first exposure at the 56th La Biennale di Venezia, the beauty of the Caribbean still dominates the studio.  The sea and her boats, the land and her flowers, just pick your passion.

Sailing still Reigns

Looking forward to the Work Boat Races on Grand Anse Beach at the end of January.  Just a few paintings to celebrate!

Sail Awaiting, 56" x 48" Oil

The folds of the sails always fascinate me--just waiting to be unfurled and start their symphony of flapping.

These young guys with this colourful sail were the proudest sailors that day. No one could compete.

Big Drum Carriacou, Acrylic 36" x 48" 

 

These are some very popular paintings.  At least 4 regional calendars are coming out in 2015 where these paintings of  ladies will be included. Yay!  More dance, more colour, more traditional culture.

More Caribbean Girls Dancing

After a couple of visits to Carriacou recently the big drum has found its way into the work--the colour, movement, rhythm, african tradition, these dancers just followed on.

Back to Roots

No matter where I wander in terms of artistic expression, for example, video art, I always come back to my painting roots, and to my love of Grenada and the Caribbean.  Cocoa, Breadfruit, and the Carenage-- essential.
