AEDM (Day 30) - Painted Leaf

 "Your worth consists in what you are and not in what you have." - Thomas Edison
Today is the last day of Art Every Day Month and I managed to post something everyday except one - whoo hoo!  A big thanks to Leah for sponsoring such a great challenge that brings together so many like-minded creative people!
 I was inspired by a leaf by Alisa Burke and added some whitewashing to tone the colors down just a bit. 
Check out all the creativity on Art Every Day Month
Linking to Paint Party Friday, Artists in Blogland and Art Journal Every Day.

Lovely piece, it's particularly striking to me because of the inspirational quote you chose. I'm working my way toward minimalism and this sums it up beautifully! Happy PPF! Happy PPF Robin Panzer Art Studio 33
