Fall Leaves has been a subject I have always wanted to paint. I love the concept of painting bright patches of colour across a surface. Painting the layers of Fall leaves strewn across a grass field, a unique challenge that always appealed to me. I discovered many leaves on the lawn of a local art gallery where, in the Fall of 2020, I had a painting in a large group art show. It was a cold, sunny day with most of the leaves having just fallen. I walked around for a while until I found the perfect gathering of leaves to paint. Having taken biology in high school and college, I felt compelled to paint the textures, flaws, and blemishes of the leaves, because they tell the story of how nature brings nutrients back into the soil for life to start anew again in Spring.
