clubbing on jost van dyke

Watercolor on Arches CP, 300gsm, 9" x 12".

here it is, the caribbean experience. dozens of bronzed expats from the east coast, miami and new york mostly, sloshing down painkillers and playing "the ring game", the idiotic caribbean challenge of attempting to swing a small metal ring, tied to a cord pendulum like, so that it flops onto an upraised hook buried into a post or tree.

i was sitting in a cabana, drinking my painkiller and attempting to paint the beach, but towards the end of the painkiller the painting began to seem unimportant and, eventually, jan tired of swimming and encouraged me to take a beach walk. this is what was left.
