The third painting I did in that group of three was of the beach in Boracay, Philippines.
We visited Boracay in October of 2008. The trip was a gift to our family.
Boracay is a beautiful tropical island with palm tree lined beach and turquoise water.
Though this painting looks a bit abstract it is exactly as the photo I took to use as a reference. I especially like the texture of the leading edge of the wave.
The simplicity of this painting and the blue of the water is very calming and makes me long to sit on that beach and fall asleep listening to the lapping of the waves while soaking up the sunlight.
