Artist's Description

A fragile design of intricate veins is all that is left of what used to be a live deep green Holly Leaf!

The Holly leaf as shown ( regular view, not large) is 2 1/4 cm larger than in real life.

It was raining, I was bored and so I found myself outside looking for a subject. I found a few skeletons of Holly leaves and decided I could have fun with them inside. This Holly leaf was placed on my washing machine where the sheen of the washing machine picked up the shadowing of it, as well as added a little background texture that somewhat reminded me of water color painting paper. I used the available light that entered the window and adjusted the color tone to obtain a little extra warmth to the otherwise cold white background!
