I’ve been working on my art each day for the past couple weeks, working my way through a collection of leaves, seeds, and acorns from last fall, trying to find one that captured my imagination. While most days yielded little progress, I kept at it, and yesterday, I stumbled on something out of the blue.
This green and yellow maple leaf caught my eye, specifically the way one side of the leaf had curled under itself. When I explored this area through the camera, I noticed how this curl of this edge contrasted with the soft ripple of the rest of the leaf. This caused a slight tension, and a sense of motion.
