Leaf Revive Art


Just the day before, I had collected the dying brown leaves on the front porch. I had traveled down a Georgia O'Keeffe rabbit hole and considered doing an ode to her. In the blink of an eye however, autumn turned into winter. We got pummeled with 5 inches in a totally unexpected November snow. I loved it but missed the colors of fall just there one day before. What we did, was not so much representative of Georgia O'Keeffe but rather a revitalization of some lifeless leaves. And as an ode to the color that once filled the trees.


The leaves are brown and dying no more!


These turned out really pretty. I especially like the leaves against the black paper. The pop of color is refreshing. It, frankly, makes me happy.

Maybe it will make you happy too?
