Art: Sparkly Blue Palm Frond Mask by Artist Ulrike 'Ricky' Martin
Here in the almost tropical climate of South West Florida - Coconut Palms are growing in abundance. Large Fronds are shed and litter the ground year round. I collect the nicest specimen and let them dry thoroughly. Sometimes I drill and cut out eye holes, sometimes I paint the eyes on. The paint I use is acrylic with a good outdoor type lacquer applied after the paint is dry. With a wire hanger screwed into the back, these masks can be hung either indoor or out. Each piece is uniquely different, and I enjoy using nature's castoffs as my canvas.
