Fall is really here

Fall is very definitely here. I keep hearing the thunk of the acorns falling on the studio roof. The leaves are beginning their transmutation of life to death, once green, now starting to yellow and brown. Not quite falling, but already loosening their hold. Autumn is all the more precious for knowing that Winter lies ahead, sometimes 4 or 5 months long. Ode to Autumn, watercolor, sketchbook design.
