|Idea of a Leaf|
Last week while walking home from the bus stop, my third-grade daughter stopped and backtracked to pick up a leaf lying on the sidewalk. She thought it was beautiful and unusual, and I agreed with her.
The leaf sat on our piano for most of the week, refusing to leave my mind. Eventually I started playing with the ideas presented to me by the humble leaf.
|The original inspiration|
|India inks only (no acrylics yet) with a few touches of watercolour pencil for definition|
|My palette of fluid acrylics|
I am not entirely certain this one is done--the leaf seems it might need a little something more, although right now I am not sure what--and I am going to let it take up occupation of the dining room with me for a while until I know for sure one way or the other.
