Pale



Illustration Friday - Pale

Before I even got to check a new challenge for this week I gathered all the courage I could master to stroll in my freezing January garden. Everything looked grayish with the film of frost just melting away in the morning sun. I came across this ghost leaf and took it in, touched by its frailty, intending to incorporate it in my art.
"Pale" was a perfect word for today's find. Leafs glory has faded to its bare skeleton. It has lost all those magnificent spring colors, but its beauty still prevailed.
