When Maples Turn Red

When Maples Turn Red, acrylic landscape painting of red maples by artist aaron kloss, square, pointillism
"When Maples Turn Red"  
This piece, along with the one from yesterday's post, were painted together and were both based off red maples in memory of a loved one of the person who commissioned the paintings. The blazing red maple forests were a joy to paint, providing an exciting challenge ... and who doesn't just love a red maple forest? In this piece, titled When Maples Turn Red, complementary blue skies pop the reds off the canvas, and perhaps I'll return to this subject soon, but for now I'm painting other commissioned work and so I'm off to the easel on a snowy day in northern Minnesota.

This piece corresponds to a book I'm reading titled 'When Maples Turn Red,' written by Richard King, here's a link to the book:
