“The sniff of green leaves and dry leaves, and of
the shore and dark-colored sea-rocks, and of
hay in the barn…” - Walt Whitman, From
Leaves of Grass


  1. I love this picture! Beautiful! I am an artist and I like to paint leaves, water and rocks. Could I possibly get your permission to paint just the leaves (in my own photo of rocks and water) so that I could then sell the painting or enter it in painting competitions? Please let me know how I can contact you - email or text.

    1. Paint away,with my blessing! If your work progresses as hoped for, please stop in and leave a link where it can be viewed.

  2. Thank you SO MUCH! I will keep you informed. You can see some of my work at my website:
    If you go to the Paintings/Rocks section you can see the paintings including one with "your" leaves. I painted it before I planned to try to enter any competitions and it is hanging on my wall. I originally painted it with just the rocks but my painting group said it needed "something". That is when I found your photo of the leaves on a google search. It really is a beautiful photo. Thanks again, Tammy
