“Cabo Rojo Beach”


Just so you know that I am still a painter on a bicycle, we bring this intimate view of a bay, one of the most beautiful spots I’ve ever visited. We are seated under mangrove trees next to a very salty bay protected by a high rock cliff from the battering of ocean waves. On the cliff is a lighthouse and the sheer cliffs drop almost straight down to the sea where the waves continue to wear away at the limestone. There’s salt mining right near the bay. The tide comes in and then they cordon off sections and let the sun evaporate the water leaving the salt behind. Hurricane Maria storm surge kills a lot of the mangroves closer to the salt harvest area. I’ll try some drawings of them later.  This is 5.9″ x 11.8″ using pencil, watercolor and gouache on cotton paper. This was gifted.
