Last leaf of fall

When walking, looking for something to sketch, I sometimes bring my camera to capture scenes that I don't have time to paint, and I also love to pick up various items to bring home to draw or paint. This was one of those days...it was a warm afternoon as I walked searching for little treasures. I found this little branch, still holding the caps from the acorns. I took it home and painted this little viginette. I really admire botanical painters, and I don't do as well as some that I've seen, but I had a great time that evening painting this picture! I hope you enjoy it as well.

Thank you for the nice comment you left on my Late B(l)oomer blog. I was delighted to find another Wisconsin artist. I did withdraw from the Superblog because too many of my entries deal with non-art related interests like family stories, recipes, and photography. I would be very pleased if you continued to visit me. I'm planning to watch your blog!

This is really beautiful - what detail! I had to check it wasn't a photo.
