Longing for Sunny Tropical Views

I know, I know, it's the last day of January and so far I have themed the window views on this blog with the season. But right now I look out the window and the trees are bare, the sky is clouded, and I find myself wishing I was on an tropical island.

The artist Lynn Fecteau is just the person to transport us there, with her delightful paintings of exotic scenes glimpsed through open windows. So let us again let in the warm tropical breeze and drink in the scent of beautiful blooms.

This lovely scene, titled Passion and Coconuts, is classic Fecteau with her wide white-painted window frame on the ledge of which we find a couple of magnificent seashells and a red flower.

A large pink flower (is it a hibiscus, do you think?) is almost spilling into the room from its spot beneath the window, where it is clustered with other lovely flowers. This accommodation is perfectly situated right on the seashore, with a view of a strip of white sand and that dazzling turquoise ocean. A palm tree offers some welcome shade and you can almost hear the rustle of the breeze as you imagine the wispy white clouds floating over the water.

Yes, this view would do very nicely this time of year to bring hope of sunnier days and lift our spirits when the clouds blot out the sunshine as they have done today. What a scene to wake up to in a bedroom, or to have above a desk. It couldn't be easier to imagine yourself for a moment living the tropical lifestyle

Fecteau's work is available on AllPosters and is generously sized at 36 by 24 inches. You have the usual choice of mounting on wood, laminating or transferring this art print to canvas, and can preview each of those options on the AllPosters site. It also looks stunning in a frame and there are 15 to choose from, each perfectly sized for the print.
