Contact Gallery

This painting was inspired by my recent trip to Kyoto, Japan, to see the famous maple trees changing color over Thanksgiving weekend. The Sogenchi Garden in Arashiyama Park was one of the most beautiful gardens I discovered. Each maple tree was infused with a different palette of color - ranging from brilliant yellow to golden orange to deep red. This painting captures the winding path through the Buddist garden.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece arrives framed in a gilded floater frame, ready to hang.
