One of the magical things about art is that it is so so so much more than the sum of it's parts.
It's canvas and oil or acrylic or clay
but it is also more.
Humans are meat.
...bones and sinew
with big round skulls full of wrinkly gray matter
(some admittedly less full than other)
we're kidneys and intestines and
one magnificently tempestuous heart
we are organ tissue
we are cells
we are so much more
we can be so much more.

This painting is of mountains, but it is much more than a painting.
It is literally the Earth it represents.
(because of what went into it's creation)
For it's portrait I used materials actually from the place;
Poke berries for the vibrant fuchsia hues.
A paint-like poultice from crushed leaves.
And for the orange...
(also known as mud)
bright and rich as the orange clay that comprises the hills
because it is orange clay.
