New Art: The Jungle Beat

Inspired by my most recent textured/layered work SUPERNOVA, I wanted to round out the month of February with one final piece of abstract art:

This piece is titled THE JUNGLE BEAT.  It’s a picture of an elephant standing at the point where jungle, ocean, savannah, and desert collide.  Originally designed in black and white, I added splashes of color and pieces of texture to bring the picture to life.  I wanted this piece to represent a trance-like tribal dance and for you to feel like this is a hallucinatory “trip.”  I then scanned the photo, inverted the colors, and played with the hue saturation to give you this – I hope I’ve accomplished my goals and that your imagination embraces this as much as mine:
