I rarely paint with green however this time around seeing summer was just around the corner and leaves and greenery were making an appearance it seemed fitted to go with green tones. I started with the background first, that is how I get into a groove. Following that I produce a shape or two. This piece not only encompasses greenery and nature but as I was painting it, I kept being taken back in my mind to the jungle. I could not help but channel that context. The box in the middle was inspired by the fact that I felt there was a lack of depth in the painting. I thought the box could add another layer to the piece, kind of like a portal to another world beyond the one you see.
