Hello lovely and sunny Sunday! The squirrels have been very active these days, messing about in the branches overhead, dropping seeds and nuts of all sorts on the sidewalk as I walk by. This one pictured below is particularly popular on their menu, I like its shape and lively green color, the outer leaves have an interesting vein pattern, it immediately found its way to my purse.
But it was not the only treasure I brought home. The bounty of the season became quite a pile on my table I had to do something about it, 3 of them made it to a drawing. Created with Prismacolor color pencils the vigorous strokes recorded a vibrant and cheerful circle. The last photo captured some kind of wonderful energy it simply must be shared. Circle diameter is 9".
