"Love the peacefulness of this. Great for my meditation room!" Unknown
Ahhh… Spiritually, a peaceful image with a contemplative title. It also reminds people of the reservoirs where I live so a great area souvenir. The simplicity of it contrasts with other images I’ve made. This was inspired by a photo a good friend gave me. Three of the large mountain leaves are that invasive bamboo plant we find here, Japanese Knotweed, the other is a large elm. The green leaves across the bottom are one of my favorites I discovered growing along the road near a friend’s house…Coltsfoot! The back sides are a gorgeous silver/grey.
The background is watercolors…no blue leaves! The image didn’t look complete! I couldn’t figure out how to finish it until I added the fern “trees”. Tiny ferns make great trees! An example of repeating patterns in nature. Perfecto!
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!
