#009 "Maple Keys" - 4"x3" acrylic and earth magnets on wood panel

From Maple Keys grows Maple Trees... 

Wherever you have a maple tree you are going to have maple keys, probably lots of them. The correct term for these mini helicopters is "samaras" and they carry the seeds (called "nutlets") on the wind. 

I decided to do a little play on words and make a painting that will double as a "key" holder as well. I sunk some strong magnets into the wood that can hold two sets of keys for quick access.
