I love leaf paintings but it was so very intimidating. Since art itself is all
about experimenting, I figured it was time I bit the bullet. I hadn't really any excuse
for further procrastination as I had leaf, I had paint (of course) and I had recently
received some very generous pointers from well known artist Michele Kortbawi Wilk, whom by the way I think is a leafing queen with her exotic animals and full command of the materials. http://www.michelekortbawiwilk.com/
So other than the mess, that many warned me about but I obviously ignored as days later
I found wisps of silver in the oddest places, it was an enjoyable process. I think I'm ready to tackle bigger and shinier.
