Banyan House

As I painted the town of Key West, I came across many banyan trees. A very curious tree, it has roots sprouting from its limbs. What results is a tangle of branches and roots. It was very difficult to capture and I worked on it for two days. This particular one gave this home its name. Now it is a popular inn typical of the local architecture.

We wished to stay on this beautiful island but alas, it was not to be. A family tragedy forced us to return to Texas and we had to say goodbye to paradise.
