"Dancing Leaves" is from a particular childhood memory. Its a memory I have each fall, as I watch the wind blow the leaves from the trees. This memory is of one fall day that I was outside, alone, left to explore my surroundings. I remember being particularly fascinated by a pile of leaves that were continuously picked up by the wind. I watched these leaves for some time, swirl and dance around me. I wanted to capture the playfulness and the magic of this moment in this painting with the fun and colorful dancing pink leaves, but I also wanted it to portray something deeper. I painted the contrasting black sun to represent mystery and balance in life.
Finding balance is something I strive to do each day, and I believe it will be my focus this next year. What do you hope to accomplish in 2016? Please share in the comments below.
