Fall Has Fell

Thought I'd draw a maple leaf today. We don't get a lot of fall around here...pretty much green and then brown, so I found a source for royalty free photos and copied this one.

It was fun drawing it. And here in Texas it is in the 60's today for a change...cold, man! The wind is blowing a gale, but the sun is shining brightly. Funny ole Texas.

Tonight Mineral Wells plays Stephenville, my hometown, in football. Actually, I grew up in S'ville, and only moved to M-Dub in 1958 when I was a sophomore in high school. So, I have two hometowns...nope, just one. Anyway, Texas towns put such a premium on football, and the silly town just voted a bond for a new stadium, AND we hired some big-time coach from hope S'ville wins by 100 points!! Go Jackets!!

I have 10 days until the surgery...I was thinking that two weeks from today, I'll be ready to go home from the hospital. As my Daddy used to say, "Take it one day at a time!" I'm trying, Daddy!

I love autumn leaves, Sioux, and this one is lovely. Although it has been quite cool here today, it will be months before we get to see any of them.

Lovely to see you sketching Sioux, I am reading about all that is happening, keep drawing and painting, no good worrying too much.

Beautiful maple leaf, Sioux!
Yep, hard as it may be, try to not dwell, just keep on drawing (easy for me to say, I know - but sometimes for us artist types, I think it really can be the best therapy of all).
Meanwhile sending you ((hugs))

That turned out really great! I love the shading. Having just this very morning attempted to draw a tree, I am quite impressed with your work.
