If you visit the Sally Porter Gallery room, Passion: Flowers and Leaves, you can view the piece Purple Leaves. An array of various leaves painted in lush purples creates a topographic garden of the mind. Geometric squares and rectangles of white suggest bursts and glimmers of light in this internal landscape. The greens suggest grass and shade surrounded by deep purple decorative leaves, a grape cluster and even a palm tree.

The painting creates the multi-present sensation of being in different places at the same time: at the beach, in a grove of lilacs, underneath an oak, in a city or by a river. A sense of tranquility and happiness pervades the picture.
