Ulu (Breadfruit) grows on enormous trees with beautiful green leaves. The fruit is very starchy, but it takes on the flavor of whatever seasonings you use. They’re wonderful when smoked over an open fire.
The Ulu leaves in this painting are in various stages and shades of decay, from silver to red to brown — they captivate me. The shapes, the sizes, and the way they are layered one on top of the other looked beautiful.
The title, Second Chances, refers to the second chance at a longer life offered to these leaves through my painting.
Who doesn’t want to have a Second Chance or a “do-over” when we feel we’ve made a mistake or messed up? When we remain open the idea of Second Chances, we are often gifted with them — as long as we remain aware of our possibilities and then take those opportunities.
