What Fall Feels Like

It’s been up around 90 degrees Fahrenheit this week here in Davis, California. That means I’m spending a lot of time thinking about my favorite season {fall}, but not a whole lot of time experiencing it. I’ve been dreaming of:

“What Fall Feels Like,” 5 x 7 inches, pen and ink, prints available in my shop

This drawing started out with one of my favorite fall memories from when I was in elementary school—I remember marching around the base of this big tree on the playground at recess, kicking up the fallen leaves. It felt like trudging to me—I bet the leaves were up to the knees on my little legs. I think we would do this in groups—I can just imagine us—a little squad of girls in plaid jumpers (I went to private school with uniforms), marching in a circle around this tree. I can feel the weight of the leaves on my shins just sitting here.

It’s supposed to get down to the 70s this weekend, so I’m waiting impatiently, sweaters ready, to slide into the cool air.

Happy day to you!
