“The Growth Within” is a watercolor painting by 3Patch, 2023. Created to connect how nature and human internal and external growth relate to each other. Naturally within both nature and humans, growth will occur given the time and nutrients to do so. As humans we have a tendency to reach out and extend for growth to occur, while within nature there is no want of growth, there just is. Within humans we want to be better than him, her, them or it. In nature there’s no “better than” there just is.
