One of my first paintings

With all the talk I've been doing about my art and painting, I wanted to finally share with you my second painting I've done on my own. I won't bother showing you the practice works we do in art class unless it turns out to be glorious.

I finished this one last night. It's a ginkgo leaf and I just love how they look when they turn that beautiful golden color and drop like coins around the trees in autumn. It's just absolutely gorgeous, not to mention their unique, fan-like shape. So here it is.

Amy, your ginko leaf is gorgeous.
Can't wait to see it in person next week. We'll arrive on the 13th. Aidan will keep us company while you go to your art class.

That's really pretty Aima! Know how I know? Because I just want to keep staring at it! It feels good to my eyeballs. :D

Awesome Aim, keep up the good work. Can't wait to see what the Springtime does for your inspiration!
