Illustration Friday: Momentum

(click images to see more detail)

Momentum can be pretty fun...but I guess it depends on your perspective...the person who had raked those leaves was not nearly so amused...

I did this using an autumn palette as a seed of faith that Fall will soon be here. I'm tiring of 90 degrees with 90% humidity in September - but such is life in Houston, Texas. I feel the momentum gaining toward a season change and I for one can hardly wait!
