The Singing Leaf
"The Singing Leaf" I did one on a piece of sintra with acrylic paints and paint pens. I bordered it with rope and made a hanger out of driftwood and macrame. I also decorated it with a piece of sea glass, beads and coral. Hanging from the bottom are wood beads and the dried fruit from a Pandanus (Hala) tree which the native Hawaiians used as paint brushes for their tapa. This piece was purchased by a lady who moved into the house I just moved out of. When she came over to check the house out she saw this art and wanted to buy it for her son's birthday. Pretty cool me thinks.
