"Luminous," 6x6" Original Painting


There is, perhaps, no leaf more beautiful and captivating than that of the Gingko. Glorious and so unique, it is an object of veneration, a sacred tree in many cultures, a symbol of many things... the unity of opposites, longevity, changelessness, power, hope, the immeasurable past and, of course, LOVE.

6x6” Original acrylic painting on cradled board and covered with infused resin.
