"I love your idea of portraying nature by actually using nature." R.W.
I love horses and wanted to create a collection for my horse lover friends to choose from. I saw a beautiful rust colored Coleus plant that I wanted to use but missed my window of opportunity as the leaves faded shortly after I took the plant home. Time is often of the essence using leaves!
I found this ruby red Coleus and was determined to make my horse right away this time. So I made the horse but had to finish the background later, adding the horse using Photoshop. I'm so happy I have another Horse to add to my Collection!
Horses made with ruby red Coleus leaves. Silver Mound Artemisia mane and tail. Other leaves used are Coltsfoot, Lilac, Iris, Celandine, Asparagus, Elm, Burning Bush.
As leaves are biodegradable and will fade and deteriorate quickly, original Art is scanned immediately after creation, preserving their beauty long after originals are gone. Enjoy!
