The leaves are turning

The brilliant colors of fall foliage have finally come to us in Southern Maine. The mountains are past peak and the leaves are probably off the trees. Around Portland about 50% of the leaves have turned. Fall foliage is one of those things in nature that is so beautiful, but so fleeting. One minute the leaves are just turning and then they are gone—it makes me sad. I sometimes have to remind myself to stop and look, so I will really see.

Wonderful, Jennifer! I always miss the leaves turning in NC, since I'm on the road, but I enjoy seeing them elsewhere. Love your work here.

I love this picture. The line in the water, for example, is great. very inspiring.

Great picture, Jennifer! Is that a painting or a manipulated photo?

Jennifer Lawson said...

Hi Sherry. it's just strips of paper collaged into my Moleskine sketchbook and then ink and markers for drawing.

Beautiful! We don't get those wonderful colors here, so it's nice to get a peek into your world.
