"LEAF DANCE" 12040, mixed media collaged aspen leaves © Carol Nelson Fine Art


These leaves are made from Viva paper towels.  The towel has a texture to it that you can see in the actual painting, but doesn't show very well in this photo.

The paper towels started out as my brush cleaner.  I noticed what great color they had, so I decided to recycle the towel as leaves in a painting.

How very green of me!

Why doesn't it surprise me that you used paper towels that were meant for the bin (oops sorry trash) LOL.
