Autumn Birch Trees

There's an old 1970's song by Mark Heard called Appalachian Melody.  My favorite line is, "How peculiar liking old dead leaves against the sky..."    And then in the chorus, "Funny how I sit and watch these leaves come falling down... but these things are music to to my eyes...

I began painting this watercolor yesterday late evening, finished it when awoke and I couldn't get back to sleep early this morning.

Those words fit this painting so well.

Have a lovely Autumn day, everyone!
