I'm a fan of trees with twisted branches myself.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cooper!

Glad you like them!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kathleen!

I saw those leaves while walking earlier in the week, just a couple blocks from my house.

As soon as I spotted them I just had to snatch a few up!

I may be doing a painting of them soon!

Thanks to all of you for your feedback!

Love them all. Glad to see you finding some inspiration. :)

James said...

The leaves at the end, yes, I like them. The colors make words and textures in my mind that I can't put down in words. I will say simply, they are beautiful in their own right in every single way.

I used to be a summer ho. Now, Fall. Is. My. Season. The pix are beautiful, especially that complicated tree with its leafless trunks going every which way.

Hope your weekend is great.

As an aside, I hope you have more leads on another job. I'll send positive energy your way in the hopes that the Universe will shine down on you.

I LOVE trees, they are such a gift' beautiful photo's.
The picture with the tree's at the end of the path, I can picture myself happily skipping down the path...
Autumn leaves, yummy!
Couldn't even tell you the amount of hours I spent crunching around on top of them with my toddlers, when I had toddlers (teens now)

Funny story-not so long ago I actually paid for a chocolate with a leaf, a beautiful orange and red leaf that i had found on my walk. I didn't have any money on me but I told the shopkeeper I was willing to part with my leaf in return for the chocolate. He thought that was very odd and funny, and the trade was made. In my opinion that leaf was worth many chocolates but I was happy with one. No need for greed'

Karen said...

Hello Dean :)
Great photos especially that last one....I love those leaves, such beautiful rich colours!

artbyakiko said...

Beautiful pictures! I miss those beautiful trees in fall.

Deborah Ross said...

Thanks for all the beautiful pictures.
In regard to your last post, it must be hard to be looking and getting interviewed and then have to do it again and again. My son is in a job he never would have thought he'd have to take, but that's all there is for now. Just keep trying, Dean, because things will go your way sooner or later. And keep painting!

Dean Grey said...

Melanie!

Cute story!

I love the idea of paying for things with beautiful leaves!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Karen!

Hi back at ya!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Akiko!

I appreciate it!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Deborah!

I will try to keep going and to keep painting!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks to the four of you for stopping by!
