A Painting a Day #63 - Roatan Rhthym
Roatan Rhthym – 4"X4" acrylics on masonite.
Imagine my delight when I happened upon this scene in Roatan. Working from a picture I took at the time - this is the second time I paint these Garafunas on the beach. The first time is a much larger 12" square canvas and I used some Golden moulding paste in the bkg. Next time I plan to try some white glue which I find works best if I blow it dry with a hair dryer before it relaxes too much. These figures are a colorful joy to paint.
I started painting one 4"X4" miniature daily on May 1st 2015. After a near fatal drowning experience in 2013, I realized just how precious life is and I wondered why I was waiting to do what I loved most. I just wasn't finding the time.
It took a while to commit to it, but a year later, I decided I just had to make the time and I enrolled in some fine art acrylic painting classes. Under my teacher, Sharon Moore-Foster, I gained confidence and found my soul's voice through my paintings.
Now I am fully committed to expressing myself through my fine art by creating one miniature painting to mark each passing day – to leave my mark in this world.
