Interesting choices of shapes, which leave me looking again and again to see what I see. :) I like the flecks of gold (on my monitor) beneath the butterfly and leaf...one minute I see them falling from the leaf, the next rising to become the leaf...intriguing!

So intriguing. What is the leaf skeleton made of? It is so beautiful. And I love Susan's description. I started seeing the same once I read it.

Thank you all for your comments.

Bhavani, they are made from leaves and all the fleshy part is removed and only the skeleton is left. I have them in several different varieties and sizes. I think they have an interesting look.

The leaf and butterfly are such a special center of interest in this Howard. The red pattern is a knockout. Nice.

This is really very lovely, Howard. The skeleton leaf and the butterfly symbolise to me, the cycle of life. I keep coming back to take another look. Fascinating work.
