hardboard panel, "Amazon Treetop", after a photo I'd taken
in the Amazon area of Ecuador, while in a treetop platform erected
at a height of 115 feet in an immense Kapok tree. This close-up view
of a treetop about 100 yards away belies the actual location - due
to the diverse miniature ecosystem growing in the top of that tree,
it looks like a scene near the ground.
I thought this
made a nice sort of abstract, well suited to the quick nature of
acrylic paint. I took artistic license and added the parrots,
although there was at the time a pair of blue-yellow macaws in the top of a tree
about 180 degrees from this view.
