Organic Red Study

This study has a sassafras leaf and the fruit from a dogwood tree. I was enchanted by the colors more than anything. The sassafras tree is just glorious in this season. The intensity it offers will make any yard glow. Picture a bright gold, pumpkin orange and magenta red - the colors it creates amazing! The dogwood fruit is just so interesting to me. It is really the center of the flower that forms after the bloom dies out. They start out as little red berries then expand to the bumpy heart shaped fruits you see here. They then dry out to little hard orbs with wonderful curling ochre leaves on them. Like I said, the intrigue captured my artist side!
