and, we hope, we'll have a home in Jamaica -- one day soon.................
Last week I posted a gocco print made from a palm tree drawing I made while in Jamaica. What I didn't mention was that the spot on that mountain top is the place where we hope to build a home -- and this is the view, looking west, toward the seaside town of Savanna La Mar. Negril lies further beyond, in the hazy distance:
We've already begun to cut a road up to our spot:
A closer view, it's pretty rugged:
Our daughter snapped a few photos of me drawing on our friend's property right there on the mountain. You can see the ocean beyond the palm.
The result was a drawing that I turned into the previously discussed print.
Here is another version, hand painted with watercolors, of that very palm.
It is available on my Etsy shop, along with another version, matted and ready for framing.
