Yes, I love palms. I will paint them again and again. No, I don’t have any in my yard. I live in a pine forest and palms aren’t native to this area. Palmettos are the closest natives but the presence of palmettos means you are in an area prone to flooding.

The last painting was “old” Naples. This is “new” Naples. This is an old street that leads to the Naples Pier. Naples Pier was once the only access to the entire area.
