This painting was inspired by September sycamores growing in southern California. Their burnt orange color against the early autumn sky was an intriguing contrast. This painting celebrates the natural beauty that can be found anywhere around one, even in a concrete city like Los Angeles.
This painting is part of The Orange Show, showing at The Erin Hanson Gallery during the month of October. The piece is available for purchase now, but the painting would be shipped at the end of the exhibition.
This painting has been framed in an Open Impressionist frame. These frames are one-of-a-kind, hand carved in the US and hand-gilded with 23kt gold leaf. The Open Impressionsist frame is a beautiful blend of classic American impressionist frames and contemporary "floater frames," just as my style is a unique blend of the classic and contemporary. The frame is designed to stand away from the edge of the canvas, leaving a 1/4" gap around the painting, which allows you to experience every brush stroke on the canvas.
