Art Description

Painting: Oil on Wood.

This art was inspired by Francisco Oller, a 1900's Puerto Rican artist who painted a still life of coconuts on a table. Since I live in St. Maarten where coconuts are a part of life, I felt compelled to paint them. I sought out the local coconut man and told him my plan. He insisted that I have these coconuts for my painting. He cut the coconut with his machete and included the branches. The background is the sunset from Mullet Bay. This painting reflects the color, light and serenity of our beautiful island.
