In Search of a New Art Form, or Having Fun With Leaves

Two hackberry leaves with water spot designs on them.

It started when I picked up two wet hackberry leaves from the ground. Their “spines” were amazingly clear. Next, I put water drops on them. When the leaves dried, they had a design on them from the water drops. Could this be a new art form, or a waste of time? Here are some whacky results from having fun with leaves:

A photo of the two leaves enlarged on my laptop screen with a “real” leaf resting on the screen.

My favorite: an outdoor chair in the backyard with leaves, none from a hackberry, that fell on the seat. I did not arrange them.
