sketchbook :: autumn leaves

Autumn is such a glorious season that seems to scream for attention. But finding time to create has been challenging for me lately. So many things that I want to do yet so many things that I have to do, and the days fly by filled with "have tos".
Refusing to ignore Autumn's colors any longer, I took a trip around the yard to collect a few leaves and snap a few photos.
And to avoid a point of total frustration over lack of time, I took an hour for sketching in my journal.
Because, if I didn't do it now, all the glorious color of Autumn may be gone the next time I pause to look. And after that brief hour's pause spent with my sketchbook, I felt so much better.

Your leaf painting is beautiful! I know how that frustration feels, I'm happy for you that you made the time.
