This piece makes me think of a verdant jungle blooming with mysterious forms of plant life. It makes me think of the books I used to like reading when I was 10 or 12 years old about people having adventures in the wilderness and on uncharted islands.

There is something exotic, enticing, and vaguely seductive about it, I think. It was quite labor intensive to create, but I am pleased with the results. A cousin of Fuchsia Sublime, Verdant has the same undulating pod formation. I look forward to creating more pod paintings in other colorways.
