The stains left by fallen leaves on the sidewalk after a rainstorm inspired me to use leaves in paintings on paper. One fine day, I brought such a painting to an artist-run figure drawing session and drew the model on it. It was a 'Eureka!' moment. The drawing expressed something poetic about us and the congruences between our human selves and Nature.

The visual congruences are obvious. The joining of the arm to the shoulder and of leaf vein to stem are similar. These congruences allude to deeper ones like the patterns created by blood vessels beneath the skin or the pathways etched by dendrites in the brain. Nature makes a joint that moves has nuance and pulsates with energy. Like the leaves on a tree, our aliveness, our very thoughts are replete with water, air, and heat.
