Our adventure included mixing with the interior exotic rain forest and experiencing the very active volcano, Arenal. That night we were constantly awakened and watched out our window, as the volcano kept noisily erupting with huge plumes of gaseous smoke and red molten lava cascading colorfully down its slopes.

Hal was moved to paint Costa Rica's breathtaking beaches and coves ... resulting in the limited edition mixed media works entitled "President's Beach, Playa Hermosa," and "Playa del Coco."
