A few weeks ago I began to collect the colorful leaves that were beginning to appear everywhere. I’ve never been able to resist picking up every interestingly patterned, colored or sized, etc., leaf that was floating around. This year I found them to be especially inviting and comforting as well. Such a simple treat to see and enjoy on a brisk walk. Since we live in a heavily wooded area, there was a never ending supply. I am remembering now that I held on to all that I bothered to bend down and retrieve. Although temporarily forgotten about, evidently I stashed several stacks underneath various items around the house and studio. I’m just now discovering their hiding places. They will be enjoyable to paint.

They’re SO beautiful! Like you, I can never pass by a beautiful Autumn leaf and stop first to photograph and then to pick it up and take with me. Thanks for sharing!
Adorable. All those colours and shapes. Just looking at them brings me peace.
Such rich color!
