Wire Art – Palm Tree Wall Decor

palm tree wire art

Wall Decor, 18″ x 24″ x 2″. As per these dimensions, you can see that this is a not a flat piece, it raises about 2″ from the surface. It is very hard to take a good picture of it, I tried with two different backgrounds, still doesn’t make justice. 🙂

Anyway… like any other artist out there, I am inspired by Mother Nature. Palm trees always fascinated me. Here is a beautiful photo of a majestic palm-tree I took in the Caribbean.

… let’s go back to my wire art 🙂

My wire palm tree is a very happy tree. This is the message I am sending through this piece of art: happiness. My palm tree is dancing! Dance is a form of happiness, don’t you agree? Look how the bottom branches touch the trunk of the tree. It is a dancer pose! The tree is sliding its trunk to the left and to the right, like a belly dancer!

Wire Art – Rasta Woman Wall Decor

When I lived in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, I was surrounded by beautiful people with long dreadlocks. Most of them were practicing Rastafarianism, which is a strong religion in the Caribbean. I made a lot of friends and of course I got inspired by them. This wall decor is my interpretation of Dorothy, a beautiful, witty and very courageous women, whom I had the pleasure to meet there.

Dimensions 18″x22″. I used galvanized wire and a few wooden beads, to emphasize the Rastafarian liberation colors. I started with a frame, again free form, I never draw anything on the paper! I let the wire talk to me 🙂 Then I filled in with thinner gauge wire. Here are some more detailed pictures.

So… let me tell you the story…

This piece was made in St. Thomas. 100%. I took it with me in New Jersey and displayed it in my gallery here. I also advertise my art pieces online. The funny part of this story is that this piece was purchased ONLINE by an art collector who lives in St. Thomas! How weird is that? Or maybe how cool is that? My Rasta Woman went back home! St. Thomas IS her home. What do you guys think?????
