Here are some drawings of leaves that I’ve made in recent days. I enjoyed sitting at my board, turning on the light and, after randomly scattering the leaves that I gathered while raking the lawn, marking down the beautiful nuances of color and textures of the leaves with my color pastels. It was quiet drawing time. Like aÂ meditation. I looked at the leaves and light and the colors. And it felt pretty good. I think it’s good to slow down sometimes. I mean really slow down. Slow down and look. and listen. and be still.
