"Reclining Leaf"

Oil on Board. Approx 8"x4 SOLD

I painted this leaf a few months ago. It was such a cool leaf to me that I kept it on my still live shelves. When on it's side, it looks like it's reclining.

Hello Michael,

I just love this. It is so delicate and beautiful, almost moving.

I was walking my dog yesterday and noticed some exquisitely coloured maple leaves on the ground and I wanted to pick them up, and with your inspiration I will paint them.

Cheers,

Catherine Gillespie

I love your use of color and brush strokes. You're able to capture the delicate nature of a leaf very well.

It reminds me of a flamenco dress, it has movement kind of!

It is enchanting.There is something in the dry leaves that is so divine.

I agree with all the above comments - it's a magnificent painting, Mike!!! I keep coming back to look at it. I do that a lot with your paintings.

I love the articulation of the edge of the leaf, as well as the general design. What beautiful colors in the neutral background, too!
