Lone Palm, 2013, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on board, 7"x5"
Today's funky and somewhat stylized little palm is all alone looking out into a vast Fakahatchee prairie. The sky is subdued and the next hammock so distant as to lack identifying character. Will this little guy find the strength to survive and even flourish, or wither and die from lack of companionship and sheltering arms?
He's small and scrawny, but tough. If he survives his youth, he'll provide homes and food to the prairie birds and animals, and shelter from the relentless sun. I'm betting on him!
If you'd like to see more of the Fakahatchee, there's a new "ghost rider" tram tour given by Friends of the Fakahatchee. Say hello to my little friend when you pass him by!
