Here is my latest in the zen series, Turquoise Leaves Curving Around the Sun:
Branches of turquoise leaves frame a brilliant sunset in shades of yellow, orange, red and purple. Some of the leaves are dancing in the air. This piece with a southwestern palette, part of the Zen Sunset modern art series (botanical abstract landscapes in a contemporary Asian style), is an original 9" x 12" acrylic painting on a gallery-wrapped stretched canvas (the 3/4" staple-free sides are finished off in black acrylic). It has been varnished with a light spray to protect the paint and preserve the lustrous colors.
