Leaves



8x10" on Yupo.

I love having an excuse to go outside and shuffle through all the fallen leaves looking for interesting alder leaf patterns. Now that I can choose from more leaves than only the ones I could see from the ground, I'm finding quite a few really gorgeous ones. Normally I think of insects eating holes in leaves as a bad thing but according to what I was reading online when I was trying to identify this tree last spring, the alder trees are a food source for various bugs and it doesn't harm the tree.

Yeah, I'm trying to come to terms with fall :) I love summer and I hate to say goodbye.
