"Wow, what a beautiful Spring-like image...simple, beautiful..." D.K.
Sometimes playing with the leaves can yield the most amazing things with no pre-conceived ideas at all. These hosta tops were cut off as waste from working on another image. They were lying on my table when I noticed them and started playing with them, turning them this way and that. I had the tree leaf in my stash and kept trying to find a way to use it. I love the curviness of it. I added tiny real flowers as you would often see in spring flowering trees with no leaves yet. I don’t recall how the large yellow sun and purple came to me. Easter colors I guess! I also noticed that it had a sort of Tim Burton look (as in the Nightmare Before Christmas) but instead of a nightmare it was all brightness and light. I struggled a bit trying to find a title that could spoof nicely. This was the best I could conjure...
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!
