Trinidad was always a place Paul called ‘home’ as the capital Port of Spain was where he was born. He described his early childhood in the 1940s as idyllic, swimming daily, playing on white sandy beaches and catching butterflies. But it was to be another 60 years before Paul returned to paint his old home and he still found much to charm him – the old colonial houses, barbeques on the beach, fishing boats, the jungle, palm trees, and plantations. Paul returned many times to paint over the next 20 years, up and out early each morning, taking photos, sketching and setting up his easel to paint scenes that spoke to him. Holding several successful one man exhibitions at Horizons Gallery in Port of Spain, Paul’s love of the island is tangible in the watercolours and oils he painted as Trinidad ran through his blood.
