The Aspen on 84th

9/13/14 Platinum Carbon ink, watercolor, Zig marker,
Canson XL 140 lb. paper
On our ride home from the airport Monday afternoon, the first thing I noticed was that the trees were no longer hinting at color as they were when we left town on Aug. 22; they were now making a statement: Fall is here. This aspen growing in a traffic circle a few blocks from our house was fully green when I left. Today it looks at about the same stage as it was when I sketched it in October last year. Have the trees turned earlier this year?
