leaves of three

9x12 oil on canvas panel

I compulsively collect leaves. Any book in our house is likely to have leaves pressed in it. I have a shoebox full of leaves that I gathered for another project. It turned out to be handy still life material. Unlike fresh fruit and flowers, my leaves will last if I don't return to the painting for a few days.
