Delightful how the leaf just seems to fit there perfectly, Leslie.
I hope you are doing well. I'm glad to be back to commenting on my favorite blogs (for now, until I go away again, LOL).

You have an eye that picks wonder out of everything --

I have a friend who does multi-media paintings. She uses layering with a combination of materials and types of paint.
This could be the beginning of such an art piece: a mosaic of texture and muted colors with the first of a second layer (the leaf).
You truly see how nature paints for us! Awesome, friend.

The signature of the artist is so evident when we take time to see.

There is such peace in this combination of colors and textures.
