Frosty leaves

Funny how something tossed aside can become part of a piece of art work. I had stamped these leaves on paper, the stamping was not clean or crisp. It was on the floor, yesterday while painting, and I wanted something sort of dreary, they seemed just right. The texture you see in the background are crayon rubbings on a piece of old wood, wood that no longer has bark. The rubbings were done on tracing paper as it is stronger and takes pressure better than tissue. I hope to try dreary again today.

Well, this painting is very nice. You do very nicely when dreary! Do you do a painting or form of art every day; start to finish? wow!
