Paradise Palms | Oil on Canvas | 40" x 60"
The sea and its creatures and their surroundings ... all inspirational. Thus the attention to the flora of this ecosystem - palms in all their diverse shapes and colors and sizes. The broad unfurling new-growth, the desiccated palms falling to the ground like discarded sculptures. All so beautiful and interesting. 'Paradise Palms' came from experimentations in this new collection. Creating this artwork on a large canvas (40" x 60") allowed for a unique compositional approach which suited well the swaying palms. They are executed in a bright multi-colored palette with bravado palette knife strokes. This treatment suits the proud paradise palms - named this way in honor of the vision of a whole and healthy environment.
