Leaf art - blowing in the wind

I'm sharing my final submission to the leaf mail art swap on I mentioned a few weeks ago. We were to create a realistic shaped leaf, and art it up however we wanted. They must be sturdy and should be 5-7 inches tall.  Mine are all 6 to 6-1/2 inches tall, and have a watercolor collage style background. 

The backs were to be somewhat decorative in case they were hung as a mobile. I used the water color collage on the backs too. :) 

Hoping the recipients enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them. I'll share the leaf art that returns to me. 

Happy Friday!

Altered Roses

A bit of tweaked photography to share. 

These roses were found in the Western Washington University Rose garden a few weeks ago. Their beauty inspired me... and may become an abstract painting in the near future. :)

It's Pumpkin Time!

To clarify... the pumpkin FLAVORED everything this time of year isn't what I mean. Now, I DO love a good pumpkin bread or pumpkin pie, but pumpkin coffee, tortilla chips, oatmeal or yogurt? Gah.

What I really love to see are the variety of pumpkins on display.  This is the Cinderella style pumpkin display at our local Garden Spot Nursery.  They always have fun decorative arrangements of whatever is in season.

My favorite pumpkin is the little Sugar/Pie Pumpkins. Smaller IS better, after all.  :) They weren't there when we visited last week, however will be in sometime soon. I use my little sugar pumpkin for display through Halloween up to Thanksgiving, and then it is frequently used for pumpkin pie.

Now that's what pumpkin is meant to do... ;)
