Abstract Leaves Fine Art Print

Hello from Virginia! I hope where ever you live you are having a great time today.  Our weather is warm today, up in the high eighties.

 When I started to painting this abstract painting of Whispering Leaves, I had a mental block and was just playing with colors.  I pulled my brush strokes through the paint and bits of red/orange, some yellow and some pretty grays appeared and the strokes resembled leaves.  There are three little white birds in the center of the leaves. 

 This fine art print can be purchased in several different sizes!

 I hope you like my work.  Please have a good day!

I would like to feature Ruben who is the owner of his Etsy shop, "asailorwhoweaves" Ruben says," Are you looking for beautiful and fine handmade woven bracelets? Check out our selection of gorgeous and delicate bracelets. All bracelets have been woven with cards. I am a seaman (chief engineer) who comes from a family of artists in Colombia. I work at the sea, but I really love weaving these items using a very antique method. Pharaohs used to wear these beauties! I hope you like my small woven jewelry. Any question? Or simply want to chat? Drop me a line at rdtorresa [at] "
