I feel like I am on vacation nearly every time I see palm trees.  That is one of the main reasons I moved to California a decade ago.  This palm is one I can see behind my home, as the sun sets.  It is important to me that the viewer is able to see the textures and colors in the great plant being that gives a home and nourishment to so many animals around the world.  They will always be one of my favorite plants to draw and paint.
