Artist's Description

This is yours truly flying through the Costa Rican rain forest with the greatest of ease. I even bought the video of this blessed event. By now I had got the hang of it and was laying stretched way back to keep from wobbling around, and had also gotten accustomed to the non-crotch-friendly harness.
You will note the Sony camera strapped to me. You will also note the big Canadian hockey jersey so they would know which country would claim my remains… just in case, lol.

This artwork is derived from a photograph taken April 15, 2010 during a tour on the Sarapiqui River in Costa Rica.

In a tropical wet forest environment, the crystal water river travels along green pastures and farmland, lush vegetation of towering trees, vines and flowers, cascading mountains and the La Selva Biological Reserve, a scene that is worth at least 1,000 words. This environment is the habitat to several different species of monkeys, sloths, crocodiles, river turtles, iguanas, toucans, hummingbirds, woodpeckers and much more.
The fantastic setting also makes the Sarapiqui a great river for white water rafting. The moderate class III rapids are ideal for novices and families. A rafting trip on this river is a perfect balance of excitement and relaxation, as there is plenty of opportunity for wildlife viewing on the calm stretches between rapids.

I do hope you enjoy my work.

Costa Rica, which means “Rich Coast”, and is known for its great coffee.
