11x14" Carbon on Bristol with Digital Color, 2015
Crisp air and crisper leaves. The satisfying crunching underfoot. The fading heat and summer salt mingling with the scent of ripe fruit and pine. A time of restlessness, constant moving and preparing and anticipation - waiting for the first snow. A rustle of leaves gets the heart racing - ears perked - muscles tensed and ready to bolt. With no moon in the sky the forest is a darker black - the few remaining leaves hiding even starlight.
