With this oil painting, I recorded the shapes and my initial color reactions to the subject over several nights, and then I completed the painting in the studio today. The colors and abstract shapes of the bamboo and other trees were quite striking, and I hope to have captured some of that beauty in this work.

The taste of damp heat,
The forest breathes a strange but coherent energy." -Gwen Bindas
