Fall: Visual Art

Share your interpretation of fall using any visual art medium – painting, photography, sketch, collage, digital, clay; it's your choice. You might want to explore autumn's singular and transitory beauty or simply focus on a color, object, or place that conveys the meaning of the season from your own unique perspective.
