The Watchful Jungle

The title of this painting became “The Watchful Jungle” once the eyes mysteriously appeared in the tree (my children gleefully proclaimed that it is clearly Randall from Monsters, Inc 😄, hee hee hee). When I look at it, I think of the wild spirit of the rainforest with the challenge of caring for its inhabitants and resources and honoring and learning about its stories and traditions as the modern world races along. I miss the tropical forests I grew up with in Hawaii very much, so am glad to be able to visit the Masoala Regenwald here in Zürich at the zoo from time to time.
Last Saturday I attended a great Windowsill Workshop with @estemacleod and @mtantau @windowsillchats on called “Fab, Folk, and Floral”. This project is the result (swipe for some of the process photos), with the original in the Colori Combo March Week 4 colors of sunshine yellow, coral, and leaf green.
I have adapted it into a repeating pattern in a couple of sizes, with another colorway in this week’s Spoonflower X LainSnow small-scale boho floral challenge palette of sage, yellows and coffee.
