Description You can almost feel the cool tropical breeze on your face as you stand at the base of the tree and gaze up at the coconuts. I photographed this beautiful tree and painted this oil painting from the photo.
Betty Laur, Palm Beach Gardens Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement Living in a tropical climate in South Florida, my paintings reflect the birds, plants, and other animals found in this area. I began painting in the 1960's but have only worked at it seriously during the past 10 years, and now I paint almost every day. The subjects I most enjoy painting are beautiful skies and pet portraits.
