A Painting A Week No 124 - Mission Bay Palms

For Sale - 7th May 2013 
Mission Beach Palms
Size: 21 x 15cm
(Postage and handling included)

My first painting featuring swaying palm trees. There's something about the leaning trunks and haphazard fronds that made it a pleasure to paint.  These palms were at Mission Beach, Queensland, where we spent the night on our way from Port Douglas to Townsville. Its a lovely drive through lush tropical areas of sugar cane with a sense of umm, I think perhaps....timelessness!  Unfortunately, Mission Beach was hit hard in last year's Cyclone Yasi, but seems to be recovering slowly. It has a lovely unspoilt feel to it, and although it was getting a bit late in the season, we managed a wonderful 'real' Aussie hamburger for dinner, complete with beetroot (much to Peter's dismay!)
