Leaf Portraiture

In my first Vermont winter in 34 years, I am re-discovering the fashions of autumn. So many leaves!

I cannot get my hands on my usual Beach Face elements, so I’m deploying leaves instead. Inspired by another look at Lois Ehlert’s superbly clever Leaf Man, I have been using leaves in various ways to create portraiture.

The rhubarb plant can supply an entire wardrobe!

With the leftover riches I made arrangements and left them in the woods
