Kyoto, Japan, is a beautiful place to experience the Japanese maples changing color. In this painting I wanted to capture the amazing range of color you see in the temple gardens, from green and yellow to purple and red. There is such a sense of grace in the branches of these ancient maples, as well as a peaceful sense of motion with the gentle winds in the leaves.

This oil painting was created over a layer of 24kt gold leaf, and small flecks of gold reflect the light when the painting is viewed at the right angle.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting arrives framed in a 23kt gold leaf floater frame, wired and ready to hang.
