Free Spirit Barbados 2012

Free Spirit, exemplifies my style of Caribbean painting. Since most Caribbean islands are small, they are deeply influenced by the sea. Land and sea, interact and this means that people interact with the land and sea. Follow the movement from the sky on the left, into the trees, above the boat, into the shadow on the trunk of the tree on the right, down the trunk to the shade. The big circle, ends with the sea.
I have circled the boat and all the action takes place in the centre.

What is the little boy doing on top of the boat? Are the men talking as they work or are they talking to the boy? Go ahead, create your own story.
