Original Oil of Japanese Maple Trees

Cherished Japanese Maple trees on a couple's property inspired this painting. It is 4 feet square with a luscious application of oil paint that is applied with painting knives. The client selected the composition from a few sketches. This couple just did a great job remodeling this older home. What an awesome place for my piece to hang!

Here is the Panarama below. You can see the painting from the kitchen, dining and living rooms! Love the setting and the scale. Amazing how one big piece can add a view to a room.

And a close up of the knife work:

Lastly, here is the sketch. I may paint this composition again. I  loved the structure of the trees being nestled together and the movement in the leaves. Very fun to paint!
