This was an experimental, abstract adventure. No time or thought went into preparation, but rather, ideas and themes arose from the subconscious instead. Just the sheer enjoyment of random creative pleasure unraveling. I turned the piece continually as I worked on it, so that once completed there was no right way to hang it.

The title comes from the idea of faith, even as small as a mustard seed, which represents coming fully alive, empowered and reaching the full potential of your capability. That little seed of passion within can very easily grow into the tree of confident determination to ones trade, cause or vision. In the case of the Kumul (Bird of Paradise in Melanesian Pidgin) that means a plumage exploding into a full arrangement and display of incredible beauty. I was thinking of the current political and economical situations in PNG and how such a beautiful nation and people need that encouragement to come alive, rise up as one people to make a change in the direction in which their country is heading.
