one of my favorite things to do in autumn or fall is taking long walks through the woods, picking up beautiful leaves that somehow stand out in amongst thousands of fallen leaves, and taking these home.
"Falling Colors" is an abstract and dynamic landscape painting inspired by a walk through the woods, admiring the vibrant colors of the fall foliage - SOLD -
i have quite a large collection of dried leaves, never seem to get enough of them. sometimes i dry them by pressing them between books, other times i let them dry on the table, then they shrivel up a bit which on the one hand makes them harder to store, on the other hand they do look more alive that way.
do you also collect leaves in fall, or even perhaps throughout the year?
and do you ever do anything with them or does it usually end with only the intention of getting creative?
