IF. Wise

Autumn, my favourite time of the year!
Short, gray, chilly days.
Long, black, cold nights.
Staying in and cosying up.
Venturing out for supplies when you really have to.
I take my cue from the hibernating animals.
Very wise indeed.


This was my first attempt with scraperboard and I found I really enjoyed it. (Scanned and coloured up roughly in Photoshop).
