Spring dreaming

studio milledisegni watercoloring leaves (study)

I have been painting a lot of leaves over the last several months, and really love working with the fresh greens and dashes of blue and yellow. The palette makes me think of spring—though this infatuation with painting leaves actually started last fall, when I began developing a leaf-themed invitation suite. I had to set aside unfinished designs in the period leading up to the Studio Milledisegni launch, and as things got settled, but am excited to be back to work on this new collection once again.

In the meanwhile, the repetitive action of painting leaves has become somewhat of a meditation for me; you can see some of my leaf-covered sheets in the image above. Stay tuned for the card designs!
