A friend asked me to capture my impressions of Puerto Rico in a few new canvases. I flew down there and spent a few weeks getting to know the island as well as the outer island of Vieques. I found tons of subject matter everywhere, but there was one scene that kept getting my attention. Every day, an ice cream man would roll his cart back and forth along the long beach in front of us. His silhouette against the ocean of turquoise was a compelling. He worked in the heat of the day, every day, and something about it seemed quintessential to Puerto Rico. Surrounded by the overwhenlming heat and beauty the island he pushed on tirelessly. The central theme in my work is timelessness. This fellow gave another dimension that theme.
All images are available unframed, gallery wrapped, or in a 1, 3, 5, or 6 piece furniture grade solid Hawaiian Koa wood frame with either linen or silk liner. Liners come in off-white, gray, or blue. The outside framed dimensions can be calculated from the image dimensions as follows: a 1 piece frame adds 1 inch to the overall framed dimension, a 3 piece frame adds 8 inches, a 5 piece frame adds 10 inches, and a 6 piece frame adds 12 inches. Please call or email and we will be happy to provide images to help you get the perfect frame style.
