Tropical Splash

TROPICAL SPLASH started out as a blank canvas that I covered in red. Then I added white paint in an arc in which someone saw the head and neck of a swan.

However, the paint started to run when I left it to dry, and so I was forced to build on it.

The end result reminds me of my time in Curaçao, and visiting parts of the Amazon rainforest in Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela while I still could see all the tropical colours, aromas and the sounds of birds singing. Some people say they see a blue and white parrot flying with its wings spread, while others have seen a beautiful green seahorse. What do you see in it?
