"Painting these Jamaican landscapes and seascapes let me relive the experience of being stranded on a remote tropical island, far away from the complexities of civilization. Negril in the late 1970s was countrified, pristinely beautiful, and poverty stricken. We didn't even have electricity the first few years, only kerosene lamps. I'm grateful that I got to experience the simple life in such a lush, unspoiled, near-jungle environment, with its endless beaches and coral rock cliffs lining the seacoast. I haven't been back to the Caribbean since the early 1980s."
