Balsa

Balsa12x18 inchesAcrylic on canvas April 27, 2016A "balsa" is a bamboo raft that makes for happy lounging at sea. Last weekend I took my niece, Patrice, to a windsurfing cove in Anilao, Batangas. We sat on the balsa at midday, wind blowing from all directions, fishes swimming underneath, and I set out to paint. Of course the canvas fell in the water and my palette got blown over many times, but it's working like this with the raw energy of a floating raft, feet soaked in seawater, and the maddeningly hot sun on our backs that makes outdoor painting so worth it!#thisisthelife  #sun  #sea  #beach  #summer #pleinair  #painting  #acrylic  #anilao Thank you @heidiklumph88, Chloe and Cocobear  for having us over!
