Leaves of Change

18″ x 18″ Mixed media on wood

We have been feeling the shift in weather here in San Diego, well kind of, it’s usually pretty nice here year round. But I do love Fall, and Halloween, and I can’t wait to start decorating for that!

To get me in the Fall spirit, I finally started this mixed media piece that’s been on my mind for a while. You see, I collected the leaves while on vacation in Colorado a couple years ago, slipped them into a book to keep flat and protected, and then completely forgot about them for a couple of years.

The friends that we were visiting in Colorado have 4 kids. The leaves were from the tree in front of their house, so, I placed a leaf for each member of the family in a circle. So it’s kind of like the circle of life, always spinning, constantly changing and growing.

The center dried leaves are from another time and place, but I love the way it looks in the middle. The blue circles add a little pop and contrast, and CO state colors include blue and red, so it all just works!
