Surfboards in dappled light

(OK, I know this write-up is a presumptuous stretch.) Monet portrayed the beauty he found in the play of light on the front of the Rouen Cathedral and stacks of hay in the fields. For Van Gogh, a vase with sunflowers sufficed as a vehicle for his artistic expression. For Andy Warhol, a Campbell's Tomato Soup can became an artistic masterpiece. We find art in what we see.

If Monet, Van Gogh or Warhol had lived in Tamarindo, I think that they may have been inspired to paint the dappled light highlighting the patterns on rows of surfboards, such as the scene depicted in this photo.

I took this photo of a few of the rental surfboards available at the Witch's Rock Surf Camp in Tamarindo. It reminds me of a ski lodge, except it is for surfers.
