This painting was inspired by a trip we took to Jaco, Costa Rica in October, 2016. It was hot and humid there, but it was also very lush, green, and beautiful… we took our boys on a boat trip to see capuchin monkeys and crocodiles. We also took a trip to the rain forest and, of course – the beach! Beautiful country! Also, someone told me this reminded them of a daytime starry night… how cool is that?!
