It's Gonna To Be Awesome features largescale oil paintings, one largescale (40 x 60 inch) embroidered painting, and a number of smaller studies. In this body of work Glover deals with personal space and individuality. The curvilinear shape depicted in her paintings is the
homemade concrete skate bowl in her back yard. This is a landscape built for a single leisurely and social activity: skateboarding. The paintings serve as homage to the individualistic lifestyle around it and the efforts made by individuals to sustain it. Aesthetically interesting is the bowl as a unique structure, and its juxtaposition with the jasmine, bamboo and lemon trees indicative of East Bay
gardening. Narangkar gives treatment to her works as landscapes with definitive borders by including elements such as fences and telephonewires - reminders of the city that surrounds this oasis.
