PALM TREE IMPRESSIONIST TONALIST PLEIN AIR LANDSCAPE (CLICK HERE TO BID)



SOLD

"WILD PALM" Palm trees have always attracted me. When I lived in the Midwest I enjoyed vacationing in tropical places, and palms came to represent a vacation state of mind. Now I’ve lived in California for many years where palms are plentiful, but they still have a hold on me. I found this untrimmed palm tree growing wild in an abandoned field. As I painted it the only sounds were the rustling of the dry fronds in the balmy breeze. The opening bid on eBay for this 8”x10” plein air painting is $85, with no reserve. Thanks for stopping to look, and enjoy the view! -- Tom Brown.
