Potter's Palette

Got an invitation to send an artwork on canvas to this show, which is a fund raiser for the NC Pottery Center.

This is the finished 12"x12" mixed media painting I sent in. After much staring at the blank canvas and one false start, I decided to try and capture an image I use in my pottery, which is leaves on a water surface. The ginkgo leaves are ones I gathered last fall to use on pottery (I freeze them to preserve them. ) They were at the height of color then.
Sorry about the light reflections off the surface of the canvas. I used a high gloss finish over the whole painting.
