“Her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise and the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn--that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness--that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.”
― Jane Austen, Persuasion
I was reading Persuasion again! Loved the quote about autumn; but fall is my favorite season, it makes me more energetic and more creative. I found a few red leaves on Sunday (still a bit early for leaves to fall on the ground) and it inspired me to do this little artwork.
