Edge of the Island

At the far edge of Bastimentos, Bocas Del Toro Panama is a wave of considerable consequence.  It comes out of very deep water...9000 feet deep just a few miles out, and unloads on a bulge of deep water reef. 

This painting's challenge was in getting the mood of the atmosphere correct...overcast, hot and humid, thick air, no wind.  The tropical water drains off the deep reef and just lights up.

Bahia Sur, Tamarindo

At the southern corner of the bay in Tamarindo is Isla Capitan and Playa de Sur.  This painting is a retrospective image to the days when few surfed here and the beauty of this wonderful part of Costa Rica, untouched.
