Grow- Illustration Friday

Grow- Illustration Friday challenge for Oct. 19, 2007.
I was walking with my dog gathering fall leaves to put on my art table for inspiration when I decided to paint this leaf. I wanted to "immortalize" it's beauty for all to see. To me Fall is celebration of growth.

Ellen, this is very striking against the dark background. Fall is a great season especially when the sun shines and a warm wind blows.
