Tremble

I do tremble for the present generation, those who are 18-22 years of age. However, those who are in their late 20's to early 30's, I have much hope for!

Rouchswalwe, what an interesting response! I've wondered what thoughts this drawing would provoke in viewers. Not only is it extremely realistic, but it was made by the French glass maker Emile Galle. Another thing - tremble is the French name for the quaking aspen tree, and these are aspen leaves. A simpel drawing with several layers, no?
