In New Zealand we have a lot of epiphytic growth - plants that grow on other plants and trees - especially in areas of good rainfall. And these are not just tiny plants, some of them are substantial in their own right, like this Griselinia and the Northern Rata - often 100 feet high - which begins life as an epiphyte and ends up overtopping and strangling its host.
At the bottom of the painting is the Five-Finger - Pseudopanax arboreum - a member of the Aralia family found in lowland forest throughout New Zealand.
Acrylic on canvas board. Overall size 12" x 16".
