TROPICAL GLASS

Diane and I are back from two weeks in Puerto Rico.  We stayed at Palmas Del Mar, a resort in Humacao, on the eastern, Caribbean side of the island.  We went on a side-trip to the island of Culebra.  We had reservations at Mamacita’s Guest House, a short walk from the ferry terminal. When checking in, I saw this glass block window and was amazed at the colors!  When I stepped outside, I saw that the window was on a narrow alley painted in bright, tropical hues.

The alley led to the rear of Mamacita’s, where there was the bar to one side, and a fine waterfront restaunant on the other. You can see all the colors that ended up showing through the distortion of the glass blocks. Another feature- a large iguana considered the deck area his own.

I am a fine art landscape and nature photographer living and working on Cape Cod. The area, and my familiarity with it, leads to compositions of light, weather, and frequently water in its many forms. I share my gallery with my wife Diane Heart, whose porcelain and raku pottery blends beautifully with my work
