To Dominical With Love

I couldn't think of a better way to end my fiction project http://arthousecoop.com/users/sharonrwagner than with a story and illustration about Dominical, Costa Rica. All of my stories are short and sort of like poems. I wrote this particular story at about 4 am. I woke up in our cabina and turned off the fan to listen to the howler monkeys in the distance. And since I was awake, I turned on the light and picked up my pen and paper. I had a job to do after all. I wanted to complete at least 7 stories while on vacation! Dominical...I love you.


You can enlarge the illustration to read my words.











This is one of the many absolutely awesome beaches in the area. Whale's tail to be exact. At low tide the sand forms a Whale's tail out into the ocean. But be careful to leave before the tail is completely enveloped as the tide comes in. I thought I would include this view looking up into the same hills as in the first photo. So that does it. I've posted all 7 of my fiction project entries. If you are new to my blog you can check out the enclosed link above to get the rest of the story.

Don't ever stop doing your artwork. I used to illustrate stories all the time and had editors sending messages and poetry for me to illustrate. Those were the days before we had computers so everything was done my mail. Anyway, I just stopped and began working on videos and television and did one 13-week series in West Palm Beach and by then I was out of illustrating for a long time. I recently started buying tools and books and wanted to get started and was stunned that I was not able to do some of my characters I had developed. And my use of India ink and a red sable brush had faded away period. So keep it up. What you are doing is great stuff.
