This piece of artwork is inspired by the changing of seasons from the winter solstice to the summer solstice. I chose to use an earthy dark grey for the entire scene and five UV inks to represent the blossoming leaves, flowers and mountain snow melting in spring. If the shirt goes how I plan, it would be winter while your indoors, but as soon as you walk outside or into UV light the shirt will bloom. I hope you enjoy :)
