oak leaves

In the spring it is maple seeds. In autumn, acorns. Lately it's been oak leaves.




The shapes and colors and sizes are all so varied. And the leaves are sturdy enough not to crumble after they fall. And so on walks I've been picking them up. With the inevitable result:










It's been wonderful to finally be working in my new studio. It's such a perfect work space. Cozy and spacious and organized. I loved my other studio, but it never felt finished. This one, although it still needs a little tweaking (better lighting and maybe a shelf above one table) feels much more finished. I hope to spend many, many hours here this winter.

  2. They are fab! It took me a second on the first picture to realize some were real leaves and some painted.
