Artwork Description

Oil Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the front.

This tropical beach almond tree (terminalia catappa) changes leaf colour as the dry season sets in. This is during the southern spring, rather than autumn. I wanted to capture its many colours at this time. The leaves are large and strong and glossy, a fact that captured my eye when we moved to the tropics from southern parts of Australia. They are bold and 'out there' and attract attention over the flora of the region. Here they pick up the sun on their glossy surfaces. We often see leaves as just a background or framework for other flowers or posies. I like to paint the leaves in their own right as the true subject of the painting.

oil paint on 2 canvases, can be displayed separately or together, ie each canvas is complete in itself as regards composition, balance etc
