Lilacs, 24.5" x 17", Oil on Board 
Today I began to see how some of the leaves will be in the foreground and act as a compositional tool to lead the viewer toward the blossoms.  I also realize that I prefer a really deep, dark ground against the plants, creating an unknown and ambiguous space, a sort of push and pull between what is leaf and what is ground. Also, not so sure about the diagonal created by the bush and the ground against the sky.
