"Leaves," My Latest Painting

    When I selected this image to paint it was the colors that attracted me, but as I proceeded in painting it, against all of the madness that is happening in the United States, I began to think of the painting as a homage to Canada my adopted country, whose emblem, after all is the red Maple leaf. 
    I took the photo that this painting is based on under a domesticated Maple at the Slim Creek Rest Area, where we stop every time we drive to Prince George.
    I started this painting in January, and it took me 125 hours to complete.  It is my 58th painting.
