Fall is Coming!

Fall is my absolute favorite season. The colors, the smell of it on its way, the crisp air, the apple picking, spiced cider,  pumpkin patches and bonfires and trick-or-treating… It's simply the best. Unfortunately for me, Texas (where I currently live) is not the best place to experience Fall in all its glory.  So I've been doing some wistful Fall drawings while heartily enjoying the short-lived cooler temperatures this past weekend. I've been working on a paper shadowbox version of this sketch I did last year:

Since all of that took a long time and I just wanted to crank something out one day, I did this quick little leaf, too:autumnleaf_gracieklumpp_web

Maybe I'll add these to the etsy shop soon. For now I've just been enjoying Fallish things!
