Painting: Acrylic and Marker on Canvas. 60″x48″x2″

This painting was made in my backyard as I was overtaken with the warm reds in the maple tree. The orange Nasturtium has almost a saintly halo and the seed pods bounce overhead. The enneagram lists 9 characteristics of personality types and this leaf corresponds to the geometry of it so perfectly. It’s easy to find more numbers in nature, the snail shell is a great Fibonacci example. Funny, I always dreaded math but I’m interested in fractals and beautiful number sequences.

I practice something I call ‘point and paint’. Whatever my eyes fix on I paint, freehand, and with few strokes. This painting is full of plants made in this painting practice.
