Leaf Series in Ink and Gouache

While on an hiatus I needed to do something to keep my mind and hands in the paints, so I conceived a parred down way to make art, using eloquent leaf shapes. The soft and meditative results are sampled below. The dominant form from the leave's' impressions hovers in the contemplative center of the white field and is lit from behind; I think that the result is that the usual experience of a simple leaf become unusual, relaxed, evocative.
