The Dream Before Spring

"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!
