Shane (Seven) Lanes | “Maple Leaves in Bath”

This media file is attached to: Painting / Watercolor

I walked around the neighborhood gathering Japanese maple leaves that had fallen. I then took them home and filled my clawfoot bath tub in the back yard. While soaking with the maple leaves in the hottub I used the water from the tub with my watercolors to create the painting. The image relates to how lovely and playful life can be while creating art and how we and watercolor are one in a romance of water selves.
