Leaves with Some Rhododendron

2020, wool felt, pencil, fabric, paper, string and thread, 18 ½ x 14 ½ inches.

I am not sure what the orientation is.  I am not feeling emotional about that right now. We were lucky to be in MA during lockdown spring and see all our rhododendron bushes bloom.  I tried to colour the blooms, but my colours never competed with the real deal, so I cut them out and made this version.    I love the imagination of colour in the flowers.  Ironically, that is more real to me. The leaves on the other hand, are perfect! They are felted and sewed by me.
