Listen started with the swirling of the October wind. As I sat outside and thought about what this painting would be, a crimson maple leaf riding the winds of the north gently spiraled towards me from a considerable distance and landed right before me at the level of my heart. The Stories I had been reading spoke of how the seven points of the maple leaf were a visual aid to help us remember the order of creation. I said thank you to the maple leaf and the wind for their gift of answering my question of how to begin and went inside to paint.
