Leaf on Fire

And here we go.. my (most likely) last leaf for this Fall Season. I was looking for some subjects for my Sketchbook project which title is Down My Street and I found this little treasure laying on a ground and looking so pretty that I couldn’t resist to paint. It is surprising how almost rotten, practically half eaten and torn apart object can be so attractive and beautiful 🙂 ……………..

King Shadow

I can’t stop painting the leaves. I guess it is the Fall Mood finally came here. I just posted this one on line and it was picked up by somebody into the Fall Gallery on Handmade Spak . How sweet.
In this paintings shadow is definitely The King. Its little crown keeps attention and I tried to make it interesting. I’ve painted this one from picture that my baby sister (professional photographer) took back in 2008. I always admire her ability to see beauty in the simple things. And I wanted to paint this leaf since then. It took me two Falls to get there finally 🙂

I found this glowing leaf today and got inspired right away. Fall is considered to be kind of sad season, but bright colors of the fallen leaves make us artist busy :0)
