Pink Sand - Rider's on the Beach

Doesn't this make you feel all warm and happy. What a wonderful photograph. Gauguin was great friends with Vincent Van Gogh. After spending nine weeks together in Arles France painting, Gauguin decided as a matter of life and death to leave and go to Tahiti. From there he would end up in french Polynesia, only coming back to France once.
This is my favorite painting of his. A morning ride, pink sand, the breeze blowing, it speaks of possibilities.
