This velvet painting of a beautiful tropical scene hangs on a chartreuse wall to highlight the golden hues of sunset in paradise. A lint brush helped to clear off most of the cobwebs that had collected on it prior to our acquisition. I particularly enjoy the palm tree stump in the foreground. Is this a suggestion of trouble in paradise? A hint at an inconvenient truth about the consumption of limited resources in the construction of thatch huts and outrigger canoes?
This is one of the biggest velvet paintings I’ve come across, measuring about four feet wide by three feet high.
