Trees are truly the people of the landscape. These maple trees have beautiful, abstract fronds that seem to dance between the layers of cadmium leaves. The distant mountains of blue and purple are the perfect contrast to the warm colors in the foreground.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece has been framed in a gold leaf floater frame.
