IF-FLYING through the Autumn Leaves

Autumn leaves are brilliant waves of red and gold and brown.
I ride them on a gentle breeze from town to town to town.

I posted this a bit early but it fits the theme so well I wanted to offer this for Illustration Friday. It is a rework of an older Black and White image with the addition of a short poem.

Hi Ginger - As my son is graduating from a scooter to a skateboard this really hit home. It's a very warm picture and I can see my son here. I like the way that you can't see where he's heading...
