There is a story behind this piece. I received a leaf necklace for Mothers day from family, after I had my miscarriage. Like my necklace, the leaf in the painting represents our child. It will be two years this February, and I still find it very difficult to let go of the loss.
I had the desire to get back into painting, after going into collage pieces for so long. I haven't decided if I want to add to the background any. However, I like my barren tree.
