First of Fall

A fine art print of "First of Fall" makes a great focal point for the family room, kitchen or office.  A maple leaf perches just out of the current's reach, flirting with the idea of floating downstream.  The bright red color makes a bold autumn announcement and welcomes your visit.

The Japanese tea house sits above a playful stream at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Winding through lush plantings and splashing large river stones, the water creates a soothing place to enjoy the late summer afternoon.  Beneath the boardwalk I see the first sign of fall - a bright red maple leaf.  Fresh from the tree, the leaf rests on a large stone barely out of the current.  I find myself watching this leaf for more than 20 minutes, wondering if it would remain free or be captured by the water's flow.  Closer study reveals a fine balance of contrasts - rest / movement, bold color / grayscale, warm / cool, summer / autumn.  It is a refreshing place to lose track of time!

"First of Fall" is a part of my Waterfall Wall Art series.  It catches your eye and doesn't let go.  Best displayed as a metal print, the rich colors and intricate details captivate the imagination. Each metal print is ready to hang without a frame, providing a bold, modern look.  For a softer, more pastel appearance, choose a canvas print.  Two museum-quality fine art papers are also available, should you prefer a more traditional look.
