Embrace Change had originally been intended as a submission for a SAQA show for which the theme was "Metamorphosis". However, I didn't completely read the directions and realized after it was complete that although Embrace Change met the width requirements, it was about 30" too short! I was unable to submit it for that show, but there are a few others in its future.
My idea was to show two different metamorphoses. The first shows how the pumpkin starts as a flower and grows into a squash from left to right. Starting on the right, the Tiger Swallowtail caterpillar turns into a chrysalis and finally emerges as a beautiful butterfly on the left.
