24" x 36" Oil on Canvas, 2008
I visited Tulum in 2007.
Tulum was one of the last cities built by the Maya in the 13th – 15th centuries, situated on along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea of Mexico. It was also one of the few enclosed Mayan cities, with walls on three sides along the 39-feet tall cliffs of the Caribbean Sea. Tulum translates to “wall” in the Mayan language.
Blue represents both the sky and the sea, and they often reflecteach other.
As the color of the spirit, it invokes rest along with freedom, imagination, and expansiveness.
This painting is infused with this blue to bring you depth and stability, peace and tranquility.
