Artwork to inspire poetry: Fall Leaf

Fall Leaf

The above is an artwork to inspire poetry entitled Fall Leaf.  The artwork was made by taking a digital photograph of a leaf, cropping and erasing the background, and digitally coloring over the leaf with colors selected from the leaf itself.

This artwork can inspire poetry in a number of ways.  One inspiration is from the idea of fall that the artwork depicts.  Another inspiration could be from the way the artwork was made – the idea of covering detail with generality.  A third inspiration could be from the earth tone colors in the artwork.
