Comments: Typical of the coconut palms all over Puerto Rico, the title is a bit of a play on the fact there is an enormous gated community called Palmas del Mar, beautifully sterile and not the bucolic countryside I see every day where I live.
This is the largest woodcut I've done to date. I found, though no more dlfficult, I actually prefer doing smaller woodcuts, more satisfying for me personally.
