“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time"
"El arte nos permite encontrarnos y perdernos al mismo tiempo" ~Thomas Merton

Oil on canvas 12x10 in. This beach where the fishermen launch their wooden canoe boats is found below Cape Coast Castle, infamous for its horrific past as one of 40 forts along Ghana's Gold Coast where men and women were held to be sold to British slave ships throughout 18th century. This is my painting for submission to Bill Guffey's Virtual Paintout for this month. You can see the image that inspired this painting at https://goo.gl/maps/29Vey2VDdXm
