Remembering Curacao 8 V5 is a continuation of a series influenced by the colors, beauty, warmth, sun, wind, waters and people is the island of Curacao. As Hans Hoffman taught, he believes a good abstract painting is based on something real. So, although inspired by the landscape/seascape surrounding Curacao, these paintings are more about the colors and the feelings about the place than the place itself. To that point, the style and color palette used to paint V5 can invoke memories of any tropical location with warm, clear waters and intense colors like Curacao has.
