Palms at Deering Estate

Copyright 2010 Maria Soto Robbins

This impressionistic, vibrant, painting was done in oils with palette knife and brushes and it shows a stately palm among the mangroves on the bayfront grounds of the Deering Estate in Cutler, Florida. The palms are reflected on the water and the bench is waiting for it's next visitor. The Deering family had their winter home here and it's a lovely setting for artists and nature lovers alike. A great place to visit next time you're in south Florida!

It has raised, thick, impasto throughout.

Dimension: 11x14x.75 gallery wrapped canvas
