This the last of my palm tree paintings from our FLA stay this winter.  I chose The Savannas Recreation Park, southeast of Fort Pierce, for inspiration. It is a beautiful, quiet spot with many varieties of palms and other trees. In addition, there is much wildlife. It was a bright, sunny morning with wonderful, deep shadows and strong lights.

THANK YOU, BOTH-I'LL MISS FLORIDA'S TREES, BUT AM LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR OWN GORGEOUS TREES.

Wow! what a lovely painting; it looks like a golf course I played at. You're a wizard with those palms.

Great contrast! You will be happy to see what is starting to bud and bloom in PA.
