Artist's Description

I CRIED over beautiful things knowing no beautiful thing lasts.
The field of cornflower yellow is a scarf at the neck of the copper sunburned woman, the mother of the year, the taker of seeds.
The northwest wind comes and the yellow is torn full of holes, new beautiful things come in the first spit of snow on the northwest wind, and the old things go, not one lasts
…Carl Sandburg

Autumn Angel" is painted on a real tropical leaf skeleton…she is part of my collection of portraits, designed to evoke various moods, both by what they represent and also by how they’re executed….
Using various Watercolour inks, I painted the face emerging from it’s tiny veins….
The leaf is fragile and porous, soaking up paint like blotting paper..it took all my patience to stop the inks from bleeding all over the place, though I did take advantage of the bleeding in some areas…
I could not use the brush too vigorously as the leaf would tear…
There is one large leaf taking up almost all of the space…the full size is 13×20
