I have been working for several days with this single leaf that I found. It’s the middle of summer, hot and dry, and the trees are starting to give up some of their leaves in resignation. These leaves have a particular quality to them, since they dried at the height of their growth. They are still green in the center, but have dried to an orange hue on the outside edges. Really interesting colors and patterns to work with. The background textures and colors come from other leaves from the same tree, just out of focus.
