Arturo And Katarina
Painting - Watercolor On 300lb Arches Paper
Arturo & Katarina is a painting inspired by a legend that was spoken of in the movie Overboard with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. As the legend goes, Arturo, a Portuguese fisherman fell in love with beautiful Katarina. Her father, the territorial governor, would not allow his daughter to see this lowly fisherman. He told Arturo he had to ship off. Arturo did so but not before he told Katarina that he'd come back for her. The plan was that he would blast the ships horn three times upon entering the bay giving Katarina the signal to dive off the rocks and swim to the boat and they would go off together. A year later everything went as planed, but when she was swimming to the boat she got lost in the fog. Arturo panicked. He called out , Katarina!, Katarina! She called back,, Arturo! With that Arturo dove off the boat into the icy water. Sadly, they both drowned. The legend is that they reunited at the bottom of the sea. When you see the foam crashing on the rocks and spray come up that is evidence of them making love...forever and ever.
