The inspiration for this seascape painting came from a beach on the Spanish island of Formentera, and the beautiful blue hues of the Mediterranean Sea!
The canvas is made of Texas-grown organic cotton and is hand-stretched and hand-primed. The wood stretcher bars are FSC-certified and the all-natural gesso primer is made of limestone power, French marble dust, water and a touch of honey.
The canvas measures 8″ in height and 20″ in length.
Manzanillo is located on the southern tip of the Limón province on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, near Panama. In this painting, a palm tree is hanging out in the warm late-morning breeze, next to the Caribbean water gently rolling up to the shore. Red flowers are in bloom on a bush right below the palm tree.
Puerto Viejo Beach Sunset Art Print
This art print is of an oil painting of an evening beach sunset along the shores of Puerto Viejo! Puerto Viejo is just a little further north up the coast from Manzanillo.
These Costa Rica art prints are available as ultra premium prints, unframed or framed, in my Spanglish America Etsy shop. They make for excellent beach decor, especially for those that have vacationed or lived in Costa Rica (I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer there from 2006 to 2008 and came to know the country intimately).
This original cherry blossoms watercolor painting shows three blooming cherry blossom flowers on a tree branch, with hues of rose and pink on the white petals, and a subtle hint of green leaves. It measures 9″ x 12″ and is painted on archival and acid-free watercolor paper.

Painted on archival and acid-free watercolor paper that measures 9″ in height by 12″ in length. Add an optional wood frame made of natural and unstained U.S. poplar wood with a glass panel for protection.
It feels like it’s been a long while since I’ve written a post here! In the past couple of months, I’ve mostly taken a break from painting, as I’ve been focusing my artistic energy on building out a few of my Etsy shops (The Accounting Artist, Spanglish América and Kids Yoga Art).
However, luckily I have my wife to keep me on track for our personal paintings in our home! There is one that has been pending for some time, and now I’ve got a due date to get it done, which is helpful. It’s of our youngest son doing downward dog, which will match another one I did a couple years ago of our older son doing downward dog.
Here is a progress photo of the painting, which will be a combination of oil (for the portrait part) and acrylic (for the background).
Recently I’ve started a series of 25 world map watercolor paintings for a translation/interpretation company (UNO Translations) to give to their clients for the New Year. Each painting has a unique design – this one is full of roses!
This portrait painting is going to be given as a surprise gift for Christmas from the husband to the wife!
Finishing a portrait painting always feels like a grand accomplishment to me. A lot of work goes into these, from the initial construction of the canvas, to measuring proportions and sketching out the image, to painting all of the details, subtle tonal changes, and adding depth through thin layers of paint!
