Dryad - an abstraction of a leaf by Daniel Sroka

While preparing photographs for my upcoming show at ArtExpo, I discovered this long-lost photograph. I had created it eight years ago. At the time, I had seen a glimmer of possibility in it, but just couldn’t figure out how to achieve it. So I set it aside, and let it germinate. When I stumbled on it again this morning, I immediately saw how to achieve what it wanted to become. Sometimes, it just takes a while.
