Fall is my favorite time of year and acorns are a big part of fall on the east coast and in North Carolina.  Squirrels collect them and as I walk my dog I have to be hyperaware or I will get hit in the head by a falling acorn.  To me they represent pure potential to create a mighty oak.  As my first painting in 2023 it represents how I see the upcoming year.
