Newest Work Incorporates Recurring Portraits

I found an old image in an antique store that captivated me. It appears above in an unfinished
7"x 5" acrylic canvas that I call "Lilly." I wanted to use the image again, which led to the study below.

This 12"x9" piece is called "Lilly of the Leaves. " It incorporates autumnal leaf patterns that are sometimes left behind on sidewalks after days of light rain. I am going to paint a larger version of this picture, and play around color, and with the abstract shapes of the leaves.
