MY COMMENTS:
I wanted to have something to remind me of the beautiful fall colors we see here and this was the result. It is a combination of real maple leaves and acrylics.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I thought the colors/natural leaves worked great. Would love to try this again.

I love collage...never thought of using real leaves though.
The color and harmony works real well.
Will this be framed under glass?

This came out really well!! Beware...I've done something like this on two peices in the past & with time the leaves WILL curl !! I never thought they would as I had really heavy varnish on top & they still did. The two peices eventually sold and the purchaser liked the effect!:)

When I originally did this piece I had mixed feelings as to how to handle the framing and just what to do about the the varnished leaves. Yes they do curl,but I think it adds to the effect. I did not put glass on this and am really not sure that I should. Have had this on the wall at work for over a year and it is holding up fine. Have received tons of comments on it. No one has offered to buy it though! :rolleyes: :cat:
