I had wanted to do this painting before the original Embrace painting. This is actually how the painting was first conceived, so in a sense it is a 'prequel' to The Embrace. The setting is from a painting by Asher B. Durand, one of the foremost Hudson River Romantics, and a master at landscape. My interpretation is that the wanderer in the forest is recreated in gold after encountering the butterflies near the creek.
