OF ALL OF THE CRUISING THAT DAVID AND I HAVE DONE DURING THE PAST 16 YEARS I LOVE THE BAYS AND MOUNTAINS OF MOCHIMA BEST.  THESE ARE NOT TALL MOUNTAINS BUT ARE BROAD, BROODING, FEMININE HILLS THAT ROLL ALONG VENEZUELA'S CARIBBEAN COASTLINE.  THEY REMIND ME OF CANADA OR THE NORTHERN UNITED STATES - ALONE  AND MYSTERIOUS.

 

I PAINTED THESE WATERCOLOURS AT ANCHOR AT DIFFERENT TIMES.
