30 Paintings in 30 Days, American Samoa, Day 4

     The intense light near the equator makes highlights glow and shadows deepen. Green is so bright the trees look neon. This variety of coconut really is this yellow and they're very sweet. It's great to be back. Things that had faded out of memory are wonderfully new again. Walking to town today I passed a colony of flying foxes (giant fruit bats).


  1. your paintings of the coconut trees and its fruits are my favorite. They look a lot like photographs; you've got great skills!
