This piece inspired me while shopping at an art supply store and browsing all of the different items one can purchase for collage. There were so many "things" that could be glued onto canvas including grasses, shells, moss, etc. I decided to try and explore some of these textures and incorporate them onto the canvas. I traveled to the Amazon, in my mind, where I began to imagine what that space might look like since I've never been there before. I wanted to create a world where light reflects off of all the marvelous textures that I know must be there.
