Once upon a time when I was a school student there was craze of painting on the dry Ashwata leaf. I found few of them. This is probably the first painting on the leaf.

This is really an amazing work...given the texture and the size of the leaf it is very difficult to execute a pretty one like this....

This is really a novel idea and the painting too is pretty.
kRshNA says that among the trees, he is the aSvatta. I am glad you chose it as a medium for painting. aSvatta is supposed to be an embodiment of trimUrti as in this SlOka -
mUlatO brahma rUpAya - like brahma at the roots
madhyatO vishNurUpiNE - like vishNu in the middle
agrata@h SivarUpAya - like Siva at the top
vRksharAjAya tE nama@h - king aming the trees, I bow to thee!
