Tree Glory

"There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky,
which through the summer is not heard or seen,
 as if it could not be, as if it had not been!"
Percy Bysshe Shelley

Are your eyes inspired by the vivid contrast between fall leaves and stark dark limbs? 
This oil pastel etching is my attempt to capture the glory of autumn. Vibrant yellows, oranges and reds greet me roadside each day. The colors revive my soul on overcast days. I treasure this fleeting visual treat.

At one moment the glory of trees in autumn. Then the blustery wind starts and these beautiful glowing embers of color are blown out.  Whirled to the ground.

"The Autumn wind is a raider, pillaging just for fun", Steve Sabol.

You can find a tutorial for this technique at,

Now, go fill your eyes with Fall beauty before the wind starts a blowin'!
