Leaf Glow is a digitally enhanced image of an original acrylic painting, making it digital art. The idea was to capture one of the moments of change of the seasons, from summer to autumn. I was captivated by these gorgeous leaves floating and reflecting in a puddle after a fall rain.
Most of the colorful leaves floating in this image are representative of the American sweetgum tree, also known as Liquidambar. It is known for its amazing color change in the fall, red, orange, purple, gold, and yellow. The tree also produces a prickly gumball that many people use in crafts.

Creating portals of light, love, joy, beauty, compassion, hope, and gratitude is my lifelong passion and gift for the earth, hence the name of my art business, For the Earth. My mother painted in oils when I was young and encouraged my own drawing, painting, and handcrafting in all forms. My father, the photographer, gave me my first camera at age 8. As a result of these loving influences, I am a lifelong student of both mediums. I am grateful to my wonderful Pacific NW painter teachers, Stan Capon and Edi Olson, for training my eye and technique. I hope you will enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed its creation.
