The tropics are defined as the areas on our planet where the sun shines directly overhead at least one time each year. When the northern hemisphere is in the throes of January, all things tropical take on new importance for snowbound humans. All over the world, the palm tree, which grows only in tropical climates, symbolizes warmth and relaxation and its siren song beckons us from wintertime climes.
Tropical art includes a rich diversity of artists, colors and subjects. Artist Susan Davies is well known for her depictions of tropical plants and animals, many of which can be obtained on fine posters and prints at barewalls.com.
