About the Painting

Hiking between temples in Kyoto, Japan, I discovered this ancient maple tree stretching high above me. Its fiery leaves were catching the light and glowing with brilliant color, a beautiful contrast against the blue sky.

This painting was done on 1/4" canvas board, and it arrives framed in a traditional plein air frame.
