Walking in early fall, I saw this single sycamore leaf was lying in my path. It's colors were brilliant, and I knew it would soon turn to brown and wither, so I picked it up and took it home where I photographed it and then drew it in colored pencil. It speaks of the fleeting beauty of nature, and of all life -- here today, gone tomorrow.

Nature is my favorite subject - either in painting or drawing. My strongest design element is shape - both positive and negative. That is one reason why I love to depict trees in any season, especially bare trees that reach their limbs up to the sky leaving spaces through which the sky peeks through. There is a certain human aspect in a tree shaped by its environment. Variations in line, hue, and value also mark my work. My personality is calm and steady, and it always shows up in my art.
