Maple Leaf No. 3


Maple Leaf No.3
oil on plywood panel
6'' x 6"

Last year I painted a couple of maple leaf compositions, and really enjoyed doing them. They received a of attention, and resulted in a commission to do another as the logo for a new wine offered by the Maple Vineyards in California. So, I figured I paint another. Create an opportunity to use some red paint.

I still haven't decided on which of the corporate pieces I'll do next. I may have to flip a coin. That can wait until I complete this group of ebay paintings. Which ever of these compositions gets the nod, it should be started by the end of this week.

Those of you who may be interested in bidding on the painting above, can link to the auction by clicking here.

Wonderful glow in this painting! I find it a very interesting turn, that you painted the seeds in full detail and not the leaves. That gives the painting much more magic.

Striking!The leaves are such an intense foil for the seeds yet they don't seem to take over. Wonderfully done.
