I'm still working on this palm tree painting but I thought I'd show how it's going so far. I had my studio all set up with the paints out, the paper ready, water in a container, my spray bottle at hand, my apron on, the brushes out and then...blank...what to paint? Pressure was on. I had made some sketches but they didn't strike me as what I wanted to paint at that moment. Then I looked out at my view and saw palm trees so that is what I started to paint....my version of palm trees that is. I also am still in "dragonfly mode" from my Costa Rica trip so I have that subject as well to paint. I'm having fun exploring these tropical themes in such a beautiful environment!
