Sunrise over the Dunes

Acrylic on canvas

35 X 24

This is an image of a palmetto on Horn Island which I have been painting for years, different versions with different media.  I photographed this leaning palmetto as it seemed to be likely to topple from the dune.

If you visit Horn Island, you will notice the remains of many plants which did not live through the struggle, alongside beautiful new ones beginning their journey on the windy island.
