Ramona's View

9"x7" oil
Firstly, I want to thank you for looking at my paintings and taking the time to read my blog.  I know it is a commitment to do that, and I really appreciate that you give my work this attention.  This painting is from a vacation photo taken by someone who means a great deal to me.  This is a pretty personal story.  Ramona is my daughter born to a different family.  She wasn't adopted, because she was in my heart from the day she was born, and although our hours together are significant, she has a loving family of her own.  Life throws us some interesting curve balls and my relationship with Ramona has a few in it.  Ramona is now married and I am painting this for her.  It is her memory, but the painting reflects my love for her...everything in this painting has a symbolic meaning for me.  I should say that there are a lot of subtle color variations in this that I just don't think are there on a computer monitor.  The location is Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico, near the Tulum Ruins.
