Autumn in New England

The colors of fall have been beautiful this year! I wondered how the summer drought would affect the foliage, but it seems as if the variety and intensity of the hues were not affected in any negative way. While enjoying time outdoors, I've been taking pictures of the leaves and other plants that have been catching my eye. (photos were taken on my iPhone 6)

Isn't nature amazing!

I'm posting a new illustration that I've been working on for Illustration Friday. I haven't had enough time this week (again) to add the color yet, but I'd like get it on here before the deadline.

This is truly a bumper crop year for acorns!

IF "Ice"

Started creating a new illustration last night for Illustration Friday's prompt "ice". I'm posting the sketch before I add any color.
I'm not looking forward ice and snow! Last night we had the first frost of the season. Fortunately, the day turned out beautiful, and I was able to get out for a walk with a friend after work. The foliage is almost at peak, and even after a drought this summer, the colors are still brilliant.
