A Painting a Day #53 - Mangrove
Mangrove – 4"X4" acrylic on masonite.
My hubby and I were lucky enough to visit this mangrove in Roatan several years ago. The sun was setting and it was idyllic. I always intended to paint it one day and so today was the day. This miniature study could lead to a larger painting down the road. Roatan is an island off the coast of Honduras. It's pristine beaches and natural occuriing coral reef make the water as still as if you were swimming in a bathtub! Perfect for children and the snorkeling is amazing.
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.
