Inspired by rural scenes in the Danish West Indies, Pissarro painted these twin palms while creating "A Creek in St. Thomas" in 1856.
His impressionistic style is evident in the small, thin brush strokes of the palm leaves and surrounding foliage.
The radiating sun seen peeking through holds your gaze and makes you appreciate the beauty of nature.
