About the Painting

This "Crystal Light Series" painting captures the light cast beneath the trees of Texas cottonwoods, inspired by a park in Richardson, TX. The brush strokes are loose and expressive, capturing the vibrant light of early morning with a stained-glass effect.

"Crystal Arbor" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the edges of the canvas painted. The piece arrives framed in a simple, contemporary gold leaf floater frame.
