A twisted Japanese pine stands against the backdrop of Arashiyama in Kyoto, Japan. The artistically-shaped tree reminds me of an oversized bonsai. The gracefully twisting branches glow pink in the first light of early dawn.

"Dawning Pine" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece has been framed in a hand-made gold floater frame.
