About the Painting

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.

She has stuck to that decision ever since, becoming one of the most prolific artists in history. Erin Hanson's style is known as "Open Impressionism" and is now taught in art schools worldwide.
