Plants and flowers move. When you work, as I do, on form, color and detail of a particular subject, you are certain to be surprised. Buds open too soon. Flowers turn toward the sun, intensify in color, drop their petals. Leaves grow, curl or shrivel. Some subjects dry up before I can capture them on paper or canvas. The light is not always right.
To control the forces of nature, I sometimes rely on photography.

Sweet Potato

© Eva-Maria Ruhl

This Sweet Potato began an amazing transformation after having been neglected for too long. After the initial growth in my kitchen, it lived in a hanging basket all summer and grew lovely long tendrils. I especially like the sharply pointed leaves with their reddish edges, in color harmony with the potato.
