We just returned from Mexico and while we were there, I painted this one. Technically, I started it at home a few years ago and never seemed to find the motivation to finish it. So I decided to take it on a tropical vacation and, while being in the right atmosphere, it seemed to finish itself.
When I look at coco palm trees, I can feel my blood pressure drop and I get a feeling of tranquility. That's probably because, in my mind, coconut palms and vacation are linked together.
This was painted with acrylics. I just started using some of the Golden Open acrylics and I'm enjoying them a bit more than regular acrylics. They stay wet longer so I have more time to blend and play with the paint. I still fight with this medium more than any other but I am determined to someday finish an acrylic painting without uttering one single swear word.
