She Sits and Holds A Leaf That Never Touched The Ground


Mixed Media: Acrylic and Hornbeam leaf

Created 2013

Size: 30″ x 30″ x 2″

While running in the woods that surround my home, I caught a leaf as it fell. Not allowing it to touch the ground reminded me of  some religious traditions of not letting sacrosanct items touch dirt. I painted. The girl revealed herself. I placed the holy leaf in her hand.
