"I purposely didn't do too much research prior to my trip, as I wanted to be surprised with the surroundings. I was very surprised by the humidity and how wet my clothes would be, even after hanging them out to dry for days. It was interesting to see after a few days you pretty much got used to it. A little more research (and more technical clothing) on my part would have helped prepare for this but the wet clothes will definitely add to my memories and stories of this trip.
At the end of the week there so much impressions that I'll never forget. The small 12 seat plane to get to Golfito, the intensity of the daily downpours and how calming they became by the end of the trip, the size of the bugs we would see in the tree house at nights, the amazing plants surrounding us, the large non venomous snake in the treehouse the first night, the hike through waist deep water to get to the waterfall swimming pond, and last, but not least, the earthquake the shook the treehouse and woke us up on our last night in Costa Rica. Looking back and bringing up some of these memories again I feel very lucky to have been able to go on this trip and be inspired by the nature all around me.
For my print I wanted to keep the artwork bold and graphic while also being very inspired by the trip. This became the three loose shapes, the top shape referencing the amazing greenery and plant life we saw on the trip, the middle half circle playing off the sun that would come out through the clouds and hit us with some much needed rays of sun in the afternoon and the bottom shape is based on the rivers we would cross while hiking."
