To me, one of the main indicators that Autumn has arrived is pine cones. I pick up a few arm fulls each year to use a fire starters for the cold evenings when we decide to warm our home with a fire. Autumn is, by far, my favorite season of the year. I always look forward to the crisp and cool air, the brilliant colors of the leaves, and it is also my favorite time of year to stretch my legs on a good hike in the mountains.
I wanted to produce another pen and ink sketch today. So I decided to sketch a pine cone.
