Fresh from the Easel

"Dance of Autumn"

Oil on canvas, by Erin Hanson
50 x 36 in

The Japanese maple tree is very graceful, its tiny pointed leaves delicately arranged like filigree to catch the autumn sun's rays. Layers of golden yellow contrast with fiery orange and red, while distant peeks of blue mountain appear in the distance. The brush strokes in this painting are thick and impressionistic, alive with texture and color.
