These beautiful leaves are in my own yard.  I had my husband assisting me while I photographed these leaves.  He held them up in front of a strong light so I could get the light filtering through.  He held them straight up and down and I said it looks better at an angle.  He replied but it looks like a stoplight this way:)  I love when my family comes up with good ideas:)  When I was titling this one my oldest son said how about "Red Light, Green Light".   How clever!  This leaf painting a favorite of mine.  I just love it!

I also thought I would show you the collage of my 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.  I managed to squeak out 25 paintings because a few took more than one day.  It is the first time I have ever challenged myself like this and I have to say even though it was a roller coaster of a journey I am so glad I did it!



  1. I have enjoyed your gold leaf paintings Carrie! It's nice that you can have your family involved. Red Light Green Light is a smart title :)

  2. I think this is my favorite too, Carrie.

  3. I love the title too - Brilliant! And it really does look like the leaves are lit up - beautiful! :0)

  4. How nice to have the whole family involved. Very pretty!

  5. From a fellow artist is the 30 day challenge..Really Nice work.. Congrats!

  6. You did an amazing job with the 30 day challenge, Carrie.!

  7. The 25 paintings are fabulous. What a challenge you set for yourself and what a great something to look back on. Love the redlight/greenlight painting. Gorgeous
