During the two years of ‘69 to ’71 I worked and taught at a school in the center of the island of Jamaica… and I painted some landscapes and buildings that captured my attention. This view from near the interior town of Christiana I painted with a Jamaica shaped clear blue space in the cloudy sky. The original had three small blue dots to show where I lived or visited friends on the island. (I’ve experimented enhancing the dots on this version) Knox College in the center near Christiana, Montego Bay to the west (left) and Kingston to the east.
It is a latex painting on 16″ × 24″ Masonite board. (1971) Latex house paint is a water soluble material and I always had the paint company’s ‘colorants’ as they use for making different shades in the hardware store to add as needed to my paint.
