I visited Kyoto, Japan, for the first time this autumn. I have never seen such vivid, alive fall colors! The maple trees were amazing and beautifully varied from golden yellow through orange to red and even purple. This painting captures the beautiful mountains and scenery in Arashiyama Park, in Kyoto.
