Red Trees garnered a good deal of attention the two times I showed it.  One admirer in Arizona likened it to Gauguin--a real compliment!  Several admirers mentioned an interest in the style, but desired a "landscape" format: wider than tall.  Furthermore, I had always been interested in adding metallic pigments to the fundamental style of Red Trees, a Klimt fusion with Gauguin.  This painting was the first exploration into that realm.
