About the Painting

Delicate branches of the Japanese maple tree bend gracefully in the autumn sunlight. The tiny leaves of the maple tree spread across the sky, soaking in the afternoon warmth. The brush strokes are loose and impressionistic, creating a mosaic of color and texture across the canvas.

"Kyoto Color" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame.
