Painting Paradise

Oh gooo you an’t see dat bottom

Pan music, a docking clipper and coconut tree brings a touch of class to these two Tobago lovers. So a fish vendor sign says on the Eastern Main Road, Trinidad, West Indies

Tabanca means a kind of love sickness, and this street painting is expressing the early stages of a Tobago love before the lovers had their falling out. The fish cart sign shows a silhouette of a couple embracing each other at the moment the sun dipped below the horizon. And although the woman has a large sagging bottom, this is a Caribbean trait which men like to hold on to. Tick and saucy and any ting to sweeten meh fish pot.
