Leaf Fairy

"Leaf Fairy", 20x24, oil on canvas, 20x24, oil on canvas,


About the Series: I was walking on the trail to my studio and noticed a sycamore leaf that was brightly lit with the sun shining through it. I photographed it and, to my astonishment, a little figure that looked like a fairy appeared.
I printed out the photo and did a painting based on the image and named it Leaf Fairy (the first of the series).
