Imagine standing immersed among the trees, the sunlight filtering onto the forest floor. Filling your lungs with the enchantment that only the forest can devise, that sends your soul soaring with the magic all around. That is the journey I was taken on while creating this piece and it immediately called to be named Abnoba.
When creating this painting, I allowed it to develop naturally while also manipulating the coalescing process. By using the hunter green, aquamarine and along with the pops of pink, I wanted to create depth, contrast and an earthy feeling that is associated with the trees. That depth, along with the use of symmetry, create harmony and bring the feeling of being immersed among the trees in a forest to life. The use of the light background colors interlaced with the gold and bronze, allow the spotlight to remain on the greens while also constructing the perception of sun beams seeping through the canopy to the forest floor. All of these elements combined create that enchanting, soul fulfilling awareness that only the forest itself can create.
