Lil' KeikiNut

The Hawaiian word for “baby” is “Keiki” and this baby coconut palm is just beginning it’s life on the tropical shores of a beautiful island paradise!

I am always amazed when I see a palm lined beach. My thoughts are of a bobbing coconut, drifting from some far off land. Traveling, perhaps, many thousands of miles before beaching itself on a new sandy shore. Sprouting roots, it begins it's life in a totally new environment!
(And then again, it could have just fallen from the tree that is growing right above it!!)

Your paintings bring a relaxed calmness to me. I feel like I'm on vacation when I look at them. The baby palm is really sweet. It's also interesting because I never thought about how a palm tree begins...never thought about the fact that a coconut is a very big seed...always thought of palm trees as big trees not it has given me a new perspective.
