Dixon Love the Leaf

I found an exhibition I would like to submit work to at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens in Memphis. The show is called Love the Leaf and they will be accepting pieces from local artists that loosely involve imagery about the leaf. I plan on making a painting of an abstraction of the cells that reside within a leaf. I love microscopic imagery. Here is a sketch I have of what I'm thinking for my composition.

I want to use lots of cool greens and blues and a few subtle variations in texture in the areas of negative space. I just stretched the canvas and will be ready to start painting as soon as I return from visiting the in-laws and seeing this show in Birmingham.
