Hand collected, hand painted Maple leaf. The painting is of the eyes of a white wolf. I LOVE capturing the expressions and have always found looking into the eyes of any animal intriguing and moving, but especially the eyes of a wild animal.
The leaf is first coated in a medium giving it more durability. I paint with acrylics and finish with a light clear acrylic spray coating. The leaves are shipped to you between two pieces of cardboard to keep them from breaking. The painted leaves would be best to put in either a frame with glass or a shadow box as they are fragile. Not required but this would ensure giving you years of pleasure.
The leaf is 5" across and 4 1/2" tall. With leaf stem included it measures 7".
