Purple Haze

"Purple Haze"

Two ginkgo leaves tumbled across the path where I found a maple leaf the other day.  They tumbled because they had withered and curled. I'd only seen these leaves flat and sprinkled like gold coins spilled from a parking meter.  I brought them in and drew them before they curled into cocoons or spooned like lovers.  The purple haze is a glazed complement to the golden leaves, and placed on another of my textured backgrounds.
