It’s that time of year

Every fall I try to capture a few leaves in a sketchbook, hoping I can hang on to the season even after the trees are bare.

The left page is watercolor; the right’s watercolor and colored pencil.  The sketchbook is a Stillman & Birn Beta.

This fall, for the first time, I have the opportunity to put some things in a seasonal show at a local gallery.  So — also for the first time —  I made some Christmas tree ornaments with my flameworked beads.  This isn’t a great scan, but I think it gives the general idea.  The ornaments are about 3″-4″ long, by the way.

Enjoy the season, whether it’s crisp and cold or warm and blooming where you are!
