This painting was done from a leaf I collected at the beginning of autumn, in Ithaca, NY.

It began as a warmup sketch before I did some painting of something else entirely, but I ended up liking so much the colors of the leaf, and how it looked on paper, that I completely painted it. It’s one of the few paintings I’ve managed to hold on to for myself, and is hanging in my living room.
