Each of the Leaf Poems in this collection of works on paper started out as a cyanotype (sun print) using leaves collected from my surroundings (both in France and Boulder) and then were altered through chemical processes, watercolor, colored pencils, and chalk pastels. These paintings feel like a slice of permission to explore, play and experiment again. Working on them this summer reminded me of the feeling of freedom while coloring in a sketch book as a child—selecting just the right crayon fresh from the box. I hope they make your heart sing too.
