The "grünherz" was used by the Germans as a sinister squadron emblem.  I introduced the green heart into a "southeast Asian" camouflage pattern to make this visual "hybrid."  Pumice was mixed in to the lighter green shade to add texture to the painting.  This was the first time I introduced the heart as a motif in a painting and it led to many more "heart paintings" including Art Around the Park '95, '96, '97.
Greek elements used in floor mosaics at Hadrian's Villa were the subject matter for Art Around the Park '98.
