Leaves of Love Oil Painting by KneeDeepOriginals

This painting by KneeDeepOriginals was inspired by a bush of sorts that grows in our back yard. I'm not sure what it is, but I love its heart-shaped leaves and its beautiful greens and golds. The photo below depicts the lovely plant.

I've been involved with EFA for two years now. Locally, I support the Humane Society in two counties as well as a local nonprofit animal rescue group in several ways: fund-raising with music and visual art projects; sharing personally and on FB about animals ready for adoption; donating some percentage of my work and sales. I am also a strong advocate for spaying and neutering in my rural area because there are so many neglected and wandering animals who die from lack of care, starvation, or injuries sustained from being hit on roadways.
