"Leaf Dress" paintings

In addition to the "State of Dress" exhibit in the main gallery, the front of the cultural center held some of the two-dimensional work I also created while an artist in residence in Maine. While on break from creating "Pinecone Dress", I collected plant life around the island and preserved it on canvas to create these "Leaf Dress" paintings.

Here is a close-up from the large "Leaf Dress" painting, with blackberry leaves preserved in their red fall color.

Nice! I hadn't seen this series before. The color is beautiful.

I hadn't checked in on the blog recently. Thanks for keeping us up to date on your goings ons!
