A New Leaf

My beautiful model is turning a new leaf, both in this painting and in her life.
She has always been a risk-taking, reliable, enthusiastic and very hard worker, and now she will lend her gifts to the military.  She's a woman after my own heart. 
The title can be applied to the turning of the book's page, the coming of a girl's age, or the new burst of impatiens spilling over the flower box in the background.  There is a hand at work in each of these ideas.
