That looks like a poplar leaf.You should put the bugs to work for you, like David Lynch does. :)
Thanks Patti! If only I had the patience to wait for the bugs to do my work for me! I'd make them do the dishes too.
i thought it might be a hydrangea (sp?)p.s. the secret code for today was cagruhw - i'm pronoucing it (Kay-Grew)... i think it's some sort of mythological beast from the Deep South - a cajun werewolf perhaps (a la loup garou)
Haha I showed your site to my mom and she made a list of ideas for you, leaves being one. And, pardon me, my memory stinks, if I've mentioned this before, howzabout out of a pile of leaves? Bugs doing your dishes? You are a visionary, my good man!!!
I definitely want to do a pile of leaves, but need to wait til they start falling here! So where's the rest of your mom's list?!?
My guess was Birch.
my guess is hydrangea too!love the nature skulls!!j
Bradford Pear? And, I agree, in the fall make a large skull with autumn colored leaves!!! That would be a "Beautiful Skull"!
this is so cool! i wish id thought of it. i would most likely do it when ever i get bored! (except in winter for known reasons)
It is a poplar leaf---and popular too.
I would have thought, it's a linden leaf. If it's one, you would have seen seed like this: http://www.mntca.org/Reference_manual/Tree_info/Images/Tilia/tilia-cordata-greenspire-trunk-9-7.jpg I like your skulls. It's great to see the techniques, I also used to learn in school in Switzerland.Cheers, Christiane
It's a linden leaf, Tilia cordata. I did a study with Japanese beetles on linden. The beetles "skeletonize" the leaves when they feed.I believe linden is in the poplar family, though.
Thanks everyone, I guess I'll have to take a picture of the tree it came from and then we can get final official confirmation.
Geez, she'll get a kick outta me giving these ideas to ya. Bird seed. Mosaic tiles. Olives... I dunno how that would work, but if anyone can figure out a way, it's you. Rice you've done, flowers too... Pasta yet? Kraft cheese (I'm seeing a theme here...) sliced carrots. Nuts/bolts/screws/nails. And beads. Her cooking isn't as bad as you'd imagine from this...
Hey, your Flickr links for Skull-A-Day are good!
Thanks MM, tell your mom I'll definitely consider those!
Ah, good. :) I'm sure she'll keep thinking of more throughout the year. ;)
