Wild Jungle

Annie Riker

Asheville, North Carolina, US


Another dreamy place for me is a wild jungle, surrounded by all the lush green! 🌿 Eight years ago I traveled to Southeast Asia and fell in love with the Laos jungle. I got to zipline to the world’s tallest treehouse and spend the night in it, looking out over the jungle!

I took inspiration from that trip and wanted to capture the wildness of the location with all types of plant forms layered upon each other. This painting for The Great Outdoors project with Uppercase Magazine.
