Painting in Bermuda

Canary Palm, 2012, oil, 14X18

Visiting Bermuda this week I was stunned again by the exotic tropical plant life.  The juxtaposition of dead-ish bark and vibrant life is what attracts me most.  Here's a painting I did one morning while I was there.  There are ferns growing out of the trunk where former branches were cut back, and bright yellow spiny spikes at the base of the new palm fronds.
