Every week I work with my friend Miss Charle' in the garden. When fall arrives we are constantly raking. Raking makes a huge temporary difference but it sort of seems like a vain effort when we're in the process of getting an area nicely raked as we're watching fresh leaves fluttering down.

This picture is made of: corn husks, dill, hydrangea, mulberry, bark, maple and banana peel.

  1. I love this one. It's almost like an action picture, the way it captures the moment of that realization of "vanity" that you spoke of. The shape of the trees is very graceful and very natural, I think. And all those little, tiny pieces for the leaves - fallen, falling and still in the trees! I think part of the gift God has given you - part of the talent for creating these pieces - is your enjoyment of the process, even when it gets meticulous... which must be very often, it seems!
