Post Oak Leaves of Autumn

I'm not able to get outside for fear I will fall...and because it hurts so much to walk.

Our yard, back and front, is filled with oak trees...blackjack and post, and now autumn has arrived and the leaves are falling.


Today I saw this post oak twig with leaves on the deck and asked Raf to bring it in for me. I drew it with pen and ink on watercolor moleskine. I painted it with Derwent watercolor pencils.

Drawing really takes my mind away from the upcoming surgery. Thanks to many friends, and especially to Raf, for encouraging me to keep it up and not dwelling on the surgery!

Anyway, this time next week I'll be out of surgery and beginning my recovery.

Great drawing of this leaf, and the one in the earlier post, too! Best of luck with your surgery -- you'll probably find that you feel tons better! :-)

Sioux, it is beautiful!!

Soon, you will be on the other side of this surgery looking back and I hope you have a pen in your hand when you do!

It is bizarre watching the seasons come and go like looking in a mirror, our season always seen in reverse.

Beatifully rendered leaf.
