While beachcombing just around the point, you spot a local boat well ashore, locked in the beach's sandy hold and wonder what a story it could tell about being swept ashore ...
What brought this old boat to its final resting place, way out here? Was it a storm or an accident? How many sunny days and fantastic sunsets and bright starry nights has it seen? These are some of the secrets of Lost Cay ...

This old island boat was hauled up out of the water in Aruba. At first sight, I knew I had to paint it, but in a different setting. A deserted sand bar with a shallow lagoon and turquoise reef water beyond seemed right. The squall beneath the building clouds adds some drama. Now the scene is set for your imagination to write this boat's story of how it got there...
ld wrecked wooden boats and the stories they tell have always fascinated me. What has this one got to tell us?

After its last adventure, this once proud and feared ship now lies here, at peace with the world.
