The story behind Alien Jungle 1
I started to notice the subtle changes as I walked along the path in the Yarra Glen forest on that fateful day in 2017. The further I walked into the woods, I began to notice the appearance of the occasional odd-looking and brightly colored tree. I was curious and continued.
I soon came to a small clearing and then realized that everything about the environment had changed. The forest could no longer be described as a forest – it was a brightly colored jungle. Even the sky above had changed color – it was a mauve hue.
I soon began to notice, somewhat hidden by the jungle, all manner of strange creatures. They had a similarity to Earth’s animals, but they were best described as mutants. Some creatures looked like small green dogs but had scales like a reptile. The pink-colored birds had muscular legs and arms as well as large feathered wings. There was a creature that resembled an eight-legged horse, but it was multi-colored and had sharp-looking horns all over its body.
As I stood there taking it all in, an enormous creature that looked like a yellow-skinned gorilla came charging out of the woods screaming and yelling in an alien language. I turned and ran back the way I had come along what I later realized was a parallel universe path. Thankfully this took me back to planet Earth and Yarra Glen.
Although this painting is to be sold unframed this is what it could look like. It is shown for a better understanding of its size and presence.
