Untitled as of Now, acrylic/printmaking, 40 x 30

I still have work to do on this to separate the foreground and the back ground and to bring back some more life to the palm branches. I also need to brighten up the coconuts.
I began with an under painting of naphthol red and printed spirals of all sizes over the canvas.
Then, I saw the palm tree trunk in the patterning of the prints. I began adding the tree and a foreground undergrowth of hibiscus flowers, centering them over some of the bolder spirals.
