In a Jungle of Islands by litka In a Jungle of Islands by litka
12x16" 30x40cm acrylic on hardboard

This is a pretty accidental Archipelago of the Three Lovers painting. I was exploring a different way of painting (using textured acrylic medium and thin washes) with nothing much in mind. However when ever I tried to pin it down to an actual scene it just seemed wrong. So I just modified the paint pattern I had into this scene.

so what exactly is it?

It's a science fiction scene. Imagine three planets (the three lovers) in close orbit around a point in space. They're close enough together to share an atmosphere and occasionally scrap by each other knocking bits and pieces, plants, animals and people off into this shared atmosphere and these rocks then hang suspended like motes of dust within the shifting gravitational pull of the three planets. This is the archipelago, drifting 'islands' in free fall in the space between the worlds. I seem to remember an Edger Rice Burroughs book with twin worlds and a shared atmosphere, but I think three worlds would work better.
