Seasonal Art

My favorite restaurants have menus based on local seasonal food.  So I thought why not experiment in local seasonal art.  I have been collecting leaves, bark, wild flowers and dead insects to as inspirational mediums.

Birch Leaves:  I do not know what the cause is, but the result looks like delicate lace.

Cicadas:  Every morning I find the remains from the night's cicada molting around the base of trees.  I have also found a few still attached to the trees.
