Lovin' the class and trying new things. Here's the first stab at this week's lesson. I didn't have leaves around the house except for some boring philodendron type leaves. I painted one and then went to the grocery store. I was taking a picture of a croton when the florist came over and asked if I needed help. I asked if he had any foliage in the trash and he said he wanted to support education (told him I needed it for a class). So he went in the back and brought out a whole bunch of things for me. Then said he thought one of the croton's out front must have a fallen leaf. He plucked one off a plant and said "Look. This one just lost a leaf." ;-) Nice guy!
