On this International Women’s Day, I want to thank “International Women Artists” for featuring this painting in your Fineartamerica gallery. I am honored to have my work alongside such gifted artists.
For me, big, bold colors reflect the joys of a tropical island. Taking life too seriously is for city dwellers. In my mind’s eye, on a tropical island I don’t see brown palm trees; I prefer purple. My turtle’s shell isn’t grey; it’s orange. And my sun is one big happy fella. In this painting, I purposely omitted details, shadows, and folds. I wanted to keep it as uncomplicated as island life. It’s all about celebrating color and simplicity.
