Painted pottery

These gifts have been delivered and opened, so now I can publish them on my blog.   In the fall, while walking my sweet dog, I collected leaves with the intention of painting them on pieces of pottery as Christmas gifts to our adult children.  I chose specific leaves for specific persons.  I had a lot of fun creating all of them.   I then filled them with nutritious foods for each family.  The theme was nature/natural and organic.  The pieces were very-well received.  Maple leaves in a bowl for Trista.  Oak leaves on a platter for Davion and Rikki.  And Sycamore leaves on a platter for Josh and Jenaye.
