The majestic swathes of flower bracts and the joyful burst of red berries ripening on Palm trees against the green forest always inspire me. The pockets of palms in our region are an oasis of green in a jungle. The flowers and berries nourish the eye, soul, and wildlife, declaring fruitfulness and life. I feature the berries in this composition for their beauty, colour, and role in the life cycle. The forest palms are represented in acrylic, while the berries are moulded from modelling paste. Each berry was individually coloured, rolled, and placed on the canvas to showcase their swelling fruit and shadows, bringing them forward in the composition.
