Among the many wonderful things that have happened to me since I started painting, is how my mind looks at almost anything and feels it can make a picture! I keep looking for subjects as I walk around or drive to work or do anything for that matter! So this morning when Viveck and I walked to our car, there were these two wonderfully bright yellow leaves lying on the ground.....so of course I picked them up....the darwan looked very strangely at me indeed!!!! I have a bit of bark that I had picked up a while back, so together it made a wonderful picture! I tried to create a more natural background than the table on which I put the leaves.
