Framed in a dark blue rustic wood frame, double mat.
My inspiration for this piece was from a photo I took in the fall in Michigan of my Japanese Snowball bush. The vibrant colors of the leaves would soon be brown and gray and covered with snow. I wanted to capture this colorful last hoorah and push it a few levels so I used 52 colored pencils and applied many layers.
