Do you remember scribbling when you were a child? Or, better yet, getting accused of scribbling by another child who thought they were cool?
As an art therapist, I am aware of scribbling as the first stage of artistic development for a child. It is such a freeing feeling and can be very colorful.
I was having these thoughts as I scribbled with colored pencils to create my maple leaf sketch. What fun! It is the only way I know to layer color with this medium. Leaves are a favorite of mine and I could not resist filling a page of my sketchbook with a leaf in its last days.
Maybe it is symbolic of the year ending?
