Celebration of leaves

I'm posting this drawing (a secret no longer) to celebrate the fact that we have finally cleared our yard of an estimated 23 to 24 million leaves. (We have a lot of large oak trees.) The yard looks beautiful!

Author Laura Hillenbrand to the rescue!

Thanks to the book club, of which I am a sporadic member, I've had opportunity to work lately accompanied by the fantastic writing of Laura Hillenbrand, author of Unbroken. Her book tells an amazing true World War II survival story that you won't find (unfortunately) in any of today's history books. Definitely a must-read.

The happy upshot is that while listening to Ms. Hillenbrand's book, I've been able to finish two portraits and start another. Although the first two are top secret, I can share some of my progress on the third, which shows a big brother tenderly cuddling his new little brother, recently arrived.

Sh! It's a secret

The only problem with this time of year is that there are so many secrets floating around that you have to be careful. Unfortunately, the next series of portraits that I'm working on are top secret, and although the internet is such a vast arena that it's unlikely someone might stumble across something they weren't supposed to see, it is possible.

So for now, I won't be posting my art until I have something that isn't a secret being kept from someone.

Happy fall! : )
