Coconuts in the Keys


While visiting friends in the Keys, I was sitting right under this coconut tree..
I took a picture of it from that angle, and when I painted it that's all I painted.. no tree, just the coconuts. Go ahead,.... walk on the wild side, sit under a coconut tree. !!

  1. Barbra, I see you've added to the blog since I checked in last. Nice painting and fun when you live so dangerously!

    I wanted you to know I got your nice comment and usually respond to them on my blog. I have lived in San Jose since 1976, so we would have been a mere 25 miles apart in your Fremont years. I agree, Northern California is very beautiful, even to a transplanted Vermonter!

  3. Thanks to both of you, this is more of how I'd like to paint, but somehow I'm losing it.

  4. I love the way you handled the fronds--just enough (I tend to overdo them!) and the light on the coconuts is perfect--I've noticed in coconut paintings I like, that's always the key!

  6. Hi Barbra Joan! I don't think I would have been as courageous as you to sit under the coconuts, but I love the shot and resulting painting. Doesn't look to me like you've lost anything, it looks great! Just keep on.
