Nature - Filled


Some days are so beautiful they really get inside of me. On a perfect day, while walking or driving through sun and shadow, catching glimpses of sunlight through leafy trees, I can honestly say, my spirits soar and I carry that feeling through the day.
We have had such a week or two here in New England and, except for cooler temperatures, there is barely a hint of Autumn. Today it is raining hard, but making this picture reminds me of the blissful feeling I have had on a many a beautiful day.
I am entering this picture, which is done in cut paper and colored pencils, in a challenge on a new blog called Embrace the Face. This month's theme is "Tree", and I'm anxious to see what others have come up with!!

I really like how you incoporated the tree within your face. It gives a feeling of inner peace.
