This film shows how the painting developed. 

This painting was worked up from a life drawing, but I've portrayed my pregnant model as a Hindu goddess/earth mother sat meditating in gracious pose in a  jungle setting rich with vegetation and growth. It is about fecundity and connectedness. The painting was also a exercise in textures: velvety, padded leaves; curly hair; skin; moss and metal.
