Autumn Art

We took a little drive over The Last Dollar Road so check out the fall colors.  It was a little disappointing in that many of the trees hasn't changed color and it seemed that many leaves were drying up and falling without significant color change.  I suppose someone seeing it for the first time would still find it pretty but it lacked it's usual outstanding brilliance.  Still we made many stops and took a lot of photos.  This piece started with a closeup of some leaves that actually had some color.  I went for a painted look which I blended into a patterns background.  Finished it off with some shading on the edges, color on one side, a simple frame and a bit of text.  It could be a greeting card.
