Emily Leonard began her latest series with a watercolor she made while pregnant with her daughter. Although she did not know it at the time, she reminisces, “It brought me a lot of joy to make this picture during my residency in France, and I really wanted to make it into a painting.” While she normally does not prepare studies for her larger works, this special portrait of a foxglove was the origin of all the work that will hang at David Lusk Gallery (DLG) this April and May.
