Creating new work for an upcoming show

I have started working on an upcoming show that will be at the Madden Museum of Art in November 2012. This piece was inspired by a close up detail image of one of my leaf sculptures. I am taking the shapes of the veins of a leaf, enlarging them to 36" high, and transforming them into abstract wavy blades. First I cut them out of varying depths of poplar wood. Then I sanded the sides. Next I will make all the background pieces to fit beneath. I will keep all the pieces and parts separate so that I can carve and paint each one individually. This will be a very long and involved process.  I am currently working on more than one piece. This will surely take me months to complete!
