Safe in the Shadows

I produced this one a few years ago and it popped up in my photos. This is a columbine plant, just the leaves, with the sun shining through them. These plants volunteer throughout our gardens. One evening after an afternoon shower these leaves caught my eye as I was walking through the yard. The little raindrop caught but protected in the shadow was something I had to share. Thanks for looking.

Re: Safe in the Shadows

Maureen, I don't know what to say, but thank you.
I gave this painting to some dear friends of ours that were redoing their living room and wanted to put some dark purple accents in. It is nice to visit it when we go there.

Re: Safe in the Shadows

Sanlynn, wow! Agree that this is a spectacular piece, probably your best ever. I know your friends were over the moon with this gift from the heart. It is fun to visit our work in other people's homes or offices.
