This is a limited edition giclee print of my original gouache painting of the leaf of a Sassafras tree. This is from a series of small paintings of leaves from Midwestern trees. I'm on a quest to investigate and become acquainted with the natural world. This painting is a part of that mission.
All of my work has something to do with the idea of "home". I'm fascinated by the small bits of our world that stabilize us and that can so quickly disappear. Whether it be a still life of very personal items or a presidential portrait, each painting has a quality that makes me feel both comforted and anxious. The depicted antique ball jar belonged to my parents and was used for canning until I snatched it from their basement and started using it to collect change.
