16 Mar Painting Story – SAMOA Land of Big Waves and Tranquility
I just finished a painting called SAMOA recently and framed it up.
This painting is a memory of an unbelievable vacation that we took to Western Samoa in 2009.
It was Maria’s dream vacation, where the bungalows are over the water and the ocean is warm.
We stayed at Coconuts Resort, an amazing, quiet spot. It was like being in Hawaii 200 years ago.
Every morning I took a boat to the outer reef where there was a great left tube.
The rest of the day was spent exploring the island with Maria & Dylan, on paddleboards and snorkeling.
The only other thing to do there was eat & sleep!
Only a few months after our vacation there, in April of 2009, a massive tsunami hit Western Samoa and the entire area was devastated.
I’ve heard that it’s been rebuilt and Coconuts Resort is back to it’s original splendor. I recommend this vacation for anyone seeking peace, simplicity and joy.
(If you go, make sure you bring paddleboards – we used ours several times a day!)
The SAMOA giclee print is available in my Store, Here.
