Autumn Leaves II

Randi Ford's avatar Randi Ford

I am inspired by nature and the wildlife and vegetation that inhabit it. It is my fascination with the way a tree’s branches can grow into such a uniquely symmetrical & patterned way that draws my creative eye in the direction of our natural environment. It is important for me to always be aware of the living things that surround me and to acknowledge their importance in life. I feel there is a deep interconnectedness that exists between humans and nature, and look to represent the essence of peace and inner calmness it gives me through my work. Autumn Leaves II is part of a series of oil paintings that showcase my appreciation and interest in the sensual experience created by the presence of plant life. In these paintings. I highlight the ‘design’ elements of the plants by emphasizing their natural occurring composition, patterns, line qualities and colors. In my work I am inviting others to witness the beauty and subtleties I regularly notice in the natural world around me.
