Hurricane Maria hit the island of Dominica head-on in late 2017. Maria was a Category 5 storm and probably could have been a 6 if there was such a rating. The storm dwarfed the island, killing many and devastating its natural landscape and human infrastructure. We had planned to visit in February 2018, but had to reschedule a full year later. It was a return for Greg, Mary’s first time. We found a beautiful place and people getting back on their feet and rebuilding life with an optimism that many of us in the first world might find, should find, inspiring.
We visited Toucari one day, having lunch at the Keepin’ It Real, and hanging out at the beach, even chatting with the Prime Minister’s party who happened to be lunching there at the same time. The bay was calm and the sun set quietly. This prosaic dock and the men working on it, caught Greg’s eye. He ventured out on the loose planks for sunset.
A note about the media: As with all our artwork, we offer this piece in the medium or media we feel is best suited for its emotional connection. We generally find that most colors and details are most vividly conveyed through our Radiant finish. It's more brilliant and detailed than either acrylic or metal. We also offer this piece in Claritas, our acrylic block available in one or more of three sizes, depending on the art itself. It is ideally suited for the desktop, kitchen window, bathroom counter, or mantle.
Some of our larger pieces are also offered in polyptychs of different configurations on Fabrika, a museum quality cloth onto which color-matched inks are directly printed and bonded with a lustre finish for archival protection.
Whether a limited edition, or open edition radiant print or a Claritas gift, none of our artwork is an off-the-shelf Amazon Prime® delivery item. From order to shipment is usually a 10-day process, each step of which you will be kept apprised.
Shipping is free within the continental United States on all art. First time print collectors also receive free global shipping.
Otherwise, global shipping [outside the Continental US] is priced on a per piece basis.
