Long oak branches stretch overhead, forming a canopy of color into the heavens. Dawn light shines through the branches, casting a rainbow of changing shadows through the green leaves. The brush strokes are applied without layering, creating an impasto mosaic of color and texture across the canvas.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting is framed in a gold leaf floater frame to complement the colors in the piece. It arrives wired and ready to hang.
