About Palm Tree

A majestic palm stands tall amidst a tangle of tropical plants in this ethereal landscape painting by Peter Hoffer. The palm is set against a turquoise sky with curated drippings of pink and lime green. Layers of a glossy resin finish reflect light and add luminosity. This unframed tree portrait is thoroughly modern.

"You start seeing the scratches… and the blobs of paint, and the drips, and to me that's what is communicating the true landscape, the layers. That's what's interesting." Peter Hoffer
