“Even the smallest leaf is bursting with life.”

This painting was inspired by the colours of the first spring leaves bursting forth with energy and growth. Such a small thing often over looked and taken for granted but incredibly important to our ecosystem and life on earth.

This original oil painting is available to buy from my website.

Such a seemingly simple thing but so vital, not only to the tree but to us as well.

This week’s prompt is to create an image that includes or is inspired by the leaf.
