I think their name starts with an S...oh well...the painting was one I wanted to do for quite some time and had a challenge with the tall dark trunks of the palm trees.. it's important to vary the colors for interest...I think I've said that before...

Jeeeez, Annelein--I've missed so many good posts here being on the road. I looked through some of your last things and they're all amazing. As always. xo

I am right there, walking along that road amongst the scent of those flowers. Your paintings really do draw me in. Very clever!
