Oil painting of red maple trees near Tenryū-ji Temple, Kyoto, Japan, by contemporary artist Erin Hanson

Japanese Color



20 x 20 in



Contact Gallery

My first visit to Kyoto, Japan, over Thanksgiving, was an eye-opening experience! I have never seen such vibrant fall colors before. I discovered these bright red maple trees outside Tenryū-ji Temple, in Arashiyama Park. I love the way their unique branches criss-cross and form abstract patterns against the sky.

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.
