Autumn Leaves

My entry for the Music Monday : An art challenge based on song lyrics.
This weeks challenge is based on a jazz song titled "Autumn Leaves" with the lyrics being

But I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

I have four little squirrel friends putting on a show everyday in my yard.  I love to sit and watch them romp around.  Very entertaining!  One day I caught sight of one little fellow burying a walnut in my flower pot.  I thought to myself, Lil' buddy, that won't be there when you want it, as I empty, clean and store my pots for winter.
When I read the lyrics for this challenge, I knew these delicious tiny meals would be greatly missed.   I decided to draw an oak tree because I love their leaves more so than the Black Walnut tree in my back yard.
