Dead or Alive
Ink on Paper
Leafing through one of my smaller sketch books I discovered a couple of pen and ink drawings from a plein-air outing in Elk Island Park... last September. It was one of those warm, end of summer afternoons, when you sit and contemplate nature... with a pen in one hand and a sketch book on your lap. This aspen tree looked rather dead... but still a bit alive... with a few silver dollar shaped leaves dancing in the soft breeze.
