"I just returned to San Francisco from a 6 week trip to Arizona to visit my parents then 4 weeks in Mexico City -- both very sunny and warm places. Mexico City is quickly becoming my new urban playground and source of inspiration. After getting accustomed to the weather and then returning to a very cold San Francisco, there was nothing I wanted more than warm weather again. With trips coming up to Hawaii and back to Mexico City I have been daydreaming of the warmth again and this piece is a result of that. As well, the piece carries a metaphorical message in that chasing the sun symbolizes going after what you love. " - Erik Otto
