Vine Maple--Original American Oil Painting

This little 5x7 inch oil painting is based on a small Vine Maple in a nature park near my home. I especially love these little trees when autumn comes because they develop such beautiful foliage. This example isn't showing its color yet, but if you watch your neighborhood forest closely, you may see some of these darling little trees sending out their color. They are found up and down the West Coast of the United States from California to Washington State northward into British Columbia, Canada. They don't grow tall, but tend to huddle under their larger evergreen tree friends. You can see closeups of the brushwork on this painting in the landscape section of my Etsy Gallery.
