|The road to our cabin, the red is scrub oak|
|These red trees are a stand of aspen that are always red!|
|Today's watercolor sketch in my sketchbook|
I have sketched the scrub oak and aspen leaves from around our cabin every fall for the last 8 years, at least. Before that, I used to bring home pockets full of them, and hang them on the refrigerator until they dried up and fell off. Sketches are better - they last longer!
Fall is my favorite time of year. The colorful leaves excite me far more than spring blooms do, and I have felt that way all my life.
In addition to the sketches, I have woven fall leaves a number of times over the years, and here are a few of the Autumn tapestries.
