I admire artists who can spend lots of time working in series. First, you change one thing, then another, and so on. It seems you can really plumb the depths that way and uncover interesting variations. I thought I was too scattered to work this way, but I was pleasantly surprised recently to realize that I do tend to work in series, though maybe not so intentionally.
These leaves are on my design wall at present as I test ideas for a piece I want to work on soon. I kept seeing these leaves when I closed my eyes and knew I had to play with them. I thought they were a new shape for me. That is, until I sat down on the sofa and saw the table runner I made last year.
There are those same leaf shapes again. I found no fewer than three more recent pieces in the house using these leaves. I guess I'm working on my Leaf Series now. Looks impressive when capitalized, doesn't it?
