As I was trying to decide what to title this painting I couldn't help but think that it reminded me of chocolate and cherries. I can't imagine why ... must be the color. ;) No, this painting is not edible, but it does feature three red maples against a deep ultramarine background. This delicious composition was inspired by a red maple I came across one day in the fall, and I found the cranberry colored leaves with the delectable brown bark of the tree simply appetizing ... a feast for the eyes. So I captured the red maple on canvas. Bon App├ętit!
