Every Leaf a Miracle

I love leaves. When I'm on the phone doodling, I'm most likely doodling leaves. When I'm out on a walk, I can't help but gather interesting leaves along the way. Their shapes, colors and lines are always interesting. So it's not surprising that leaves make their appearance in my artwork quite frequently.

I recently made some stamps of, you guessed it. Leaves! Here are two examples of my stamps used in small paintings.



I also love poetry and like to incorporate it in my work. This lovely line from William Wordsworth, "With every leaf a miracle.." summed up my feelings about leaves perfectly.

Happy Paint Party Friday to my PPF friends. If you'd like to know more about this friendly challenge, here is the link: Paint Part Friday Thanks to Kristin and Eva for hosting this fun, friendly weekly challenge!
