Art Description

Painting: Acrylic and gold foil on Canvas.

This image is from my Daydream Odyssey collection of drawings. The leaves depicted are from a Fittonia plant on my windowsill. I stared at the leaves while at my kitchen sink and noticed the organic patterns of coloring in the leaves. I really like the way the patterns follow general shapes but also break up into organic random outlines, and I wanted to explore that - oddly shaped segments of a whole.
Interestingly enough, Fittonia is part of the Acanthus family; Acanthus leaves have been depicted in art for thousands of years in anywhere from the Ionic columns of classical Greek architecture, to carved furniture, even engravings on U.S. currency.
The pink color of the square symbolizes the original leaf color of green and pink. The square represents balance and harmony; evenness. And the circle is a very powerful symbol to me, a reminder that everything is connected and that the cycles we are a part of are never ending.
I hope that viewers of this piece will be drawn into a calm, meditative state of thoughtfulness as they contemplate the flow of shape, color, pattern and light.
