MY COMMENTS:
I started this diptych in 1992 and finally got around to finishing it in 2007 (a lot of water under numerous bridges...). Was asked by the gallery owner to provide a few extra pieces for the outdoor "Grotto" area of the gallery at my recent show. This piece seemed perfect.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Cooments?

I really like the subtle repetition of forms and color. It is painted in such a vibrant manner, it really comes to life. I guess you have to ask yourself which is the real paradise.

Thomas: Thanks for the insightful feedback!
The source reference was two tiny pix from an ad in a mid-1950s National Geographic mag.

sophia: Glad you enjoyed the piece in situ, as well.

Candice: Thanks, sweetie. My SISTERS wore bathing suits like hers.
