This is a mixed media piece: the original was done in mostly pastels, with acrylic underpainting and also acrylic inks and even watercolors.
My muse here is a Japanese Maple on my neighbor's property which I get to see out my living room window every day. But for this painting, I went up close and underneath the maple. All the leaves were in the shade, but gazing upward was this patch of intense sunlight coming through, communicating the recurring message that Light is always present when you look for it. And as always, even the darkness - in the case, the leaves - has its own beauty.
Sizes and costs of prints will be posted in a few days.
