I found this interesting bamboo bowl at a thrift store. It goes perfectly with my seascape theme. The painting is small, and the large bamboo sides of the bowl frame it out dramatically.
I painted it with thoughts about when I lived on Guam, where I graduated from high school. I was part of a youth group that put together island adventures frequently. We explored hiking trails that led to hidden waterfalls, swam in crystal clear pools in deep caves, and had many beach parties and retreats. Amazing memories!
This bowl was in rough shape. I cleaned it up and repaired the broken corners before priming the bottom. The bamboo was gray and dingy at first, so after I cleaned it up (with alcohol) the colors came back to a warm brown tone, which I loved. From there I tried to use similar colors in the sand to give it harmony. The angels were added for symbolism of my new found faith as a teenager.
