Rhubarb Leaves

    Yesterday, I was down on my knees in the garden, weeding the potatoes, when I happened to look up and see the light hitting some rhubarb leaves.  I don’t know why this sort of thing is so exciting to me, but I had to take a photo, and immediately recognized it as something I might use someday as a subject for a painting.
    I like the greens, the glow and veins of the backlit leaf, and the full range of lights and darks.  I have already done a couple of paintings that featured rhubarb, and it looks like this might be another.
