The black birds will all fly out of the trees in large flocks across the fall sky while the sunlight dances through the autumn leaves. Lovely indeed.

This is one of my favorite pieces that I've done in awhile. I love the contrast of the black birds against the background. With this piece I started by painting the background with a coffee wash, watercolor, large oak and maple leaves drawn with watercolor pencil and coffee. The "dancing" leaves were cut from painted coffee filters and tea bags and the birds were also cut from painted coffee filters. I'm very happy with the results.
