It was raining here one day so I grabbed my camera and went and took some photos of the glistening Japanese Maple leaves in our garden. I was so inspired by the leaves I decided to paint them on a black canvas to show off their colours and contrasts.
See the leaves on the maple tree
The rain has gone, they blow wild and free…
Sparkling raindrops settle and gleam
A delightful show that must be seen!
