Overcome, Plein Air, Impressionism, Palms
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on canvas
Went out with the Treasure Coast Plein Air Painters group yesterday. It was fun. We were painting at White City Park.
When I saw this little palm hanging out, I had to paint it. I love these palms because you know at one time they were blown over. The growth pattern tells me that at one time this tree started to turn and grow back up even after it was blown down. It reminds me of all the times we have to change course in life, and overcome hardships. We don't have to let things become an excuse to destroy us. Just like this tree is more interesting because it kept going, so are we.
