I sketched so many trees at their peak of color growing in traffic circles last fall (Oct. 22, Oct. 23 and Nov. 13 are a few) that I was certain I had sketched this one back then. But when I looked through my sketchbooks from October and November, I couldn’t find this particular maple at the intersection of Northeast 83rd Street and Eighth Avenue Northeast. Though it was chilly all day, the sun burned through the morning fog, making the afternoon seem warm (if not feel that way). I even saw shadows (what a treat!) in the late afternoon light.
