About the Painting:
This contemporary impressionism painting of Texas hill country captures the spring green colors of the landscape near Austin. The bending branches cut abstract shapes of light into the sky, giving an impression like stained glass. The thick, impasto brush strokes are lively and full of expression.
This painting was done on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges for a finished look.
