TitleTurning Over a New Leaf
SubjectStudent works
DescriptionOn the left side, a bare-chested, clean-shaven young man with a closely-cut Afro rests his left hand against a surface that has elements of a reflecting pool, though vertical, and so can be assumed to be looking at a mirrored image of himself. A large maple-type leaf is on his side of the image. The bare-chested young man on the right has a mustache and a fuller Afro-style haircut. His right hand is resting on his opposites' left and a line running down the middle of the whole work bisects his hand a little to the right of center. Most of the canvas on the left is a dark green. Wide black swathes edged in red seem to ripple across the right half. Additionally, the figure on the right seems to have red reflected across his chest, suggesting a fire within.
