This painting is a meditation on heritage; the things we value, and some we overlook, including the tiny pollinator outside the circle near the top left.
What is the “butterfly effect” and what happens if the tiny endangered bee is left outside of the circle?
There are stories to be found, just looking a little more closely at our doorsteps, in the woods, on the beach and in the top drawer of a grandparent’s dresser. Each of these hold clues about where they came from or what lives they touched.
In the end, the things we value most might have little monetary value or they might literally be priceless.
