A few of the leaves I picked up in autumn are still around the studio. It's been interesting to watch the changes they've gone through. Some are brown and withered. Others have turned into pastel versions of the golds and russets of fall. This one, though fragile and dry as paper, still retains some of its original green. You could say it has aged well. Probably for this leaf, age is just a number.

Really wonderfully done, Don. The shadows in particular are exquisitely rendered.

I have to say the last two sentences on your post made me laugh!

I've also been enjoying your winter paintings, and hopefully, you'll get some snow down lower before winter is over, right?

As I write this on Tuesday morning there is just the lightest skiff of snow on the ground...first in nearly two months.

Thanks for the nice note, Sonya.
