On my way to the cash register, I spotted a painting of a rocky beach with turquoise blue water, which instantly sparked a memory of Isla Mujeres in Mexico, and a picture I took of the rocks and Carribean while at the lookout of a little lighthouse there, nicely framed for 5$, so I grabbed it. I didn't even look for an artist signature or check the back, because it was love at first sight. To my delight, when I got home later, it's signed and dated and tucked in the back is the artist's biography! It's by Robert Ascroft, it's called "Wild Coast Too" and was painted in 2003. I just LOVE it!
|This is the picture I took from the top of the little lighthouse.|
|The photo of the painting does not do it justice, the colors of the water are exactly like the Carribean.|
|Now, the frame is charcoal (very dark, should I paint it or should I leave it as is? hmmmmm.|
