Decorated Leaves

Dear Chicago House,

We have had such a beautiful September, warm sunny days and cool nights. Our roadside leaf pick up kicks off in a little over two weeks but nothing has really dropped yet … maybe we will have a late Fall and mild winter..wishful thinking…fingers crossed!

I took my watercolor palette outside the other other day and intended painting some leaves…but I ended up “painting leaves” instead!

It was so relaxing, little blobs of white here and there and the odd swirl. I was actually surprised the paint was opaque enough. I used mostly white but added depth with black and reds.

This would be a fun activity to do with kids.
