My painting, "Emerging from the Jungle" is the cover art of George Saad's thesis on Shuar grammar. Shuar is the language of indigenous people of the Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador. The painting was inspired by my visit into their territory. George found me via the internet. Here is George's comment.... "The front cover, thanks to your painting has made it (the thesis) very enticing for readers and I'm incredibly grateful you helped me out!"
