Yesterday I finished my painting of rhubarb leaves. The 24 x 18 inch (61 x 46 cm) acrylic painting took me 96 hours to complete. I am very pleased with how it turned out. I was really attracted to the translucent quality of the light shining through the funnel shaped leaf and that was what I was trying to recreate. I also liked the dynamic way the edges of the leaves dance across the canvas. I seem to also be attracted to the organic vein-like structures of the stems spreading through leaves. I strive to give my paintings a three dimensional feel. It is the third painting I have done of rhubarb.
