Oil painting of pine tree in Arashiyama Japan by impressionist artist Erin Hanson

Arashiyama Pine



30 x 24 in



Contact Gallery

This was the first Japanese pine tree I fell in love with in Arashiyama, Kyoto. The magestic tree was beautifully formed, and it was positioned to catch all the early dawn sunrays, turning a bright shade of sherbet orange. The distant hillside, still dark in the shadows, stood beyond the slow-moving waters of Hozu-gawa Rivera.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting will be framed in a 23kt gold leaf floater frame to complement the colors in the piece. It arrives wired and ready to hang.
