In the background, the sun bursts from behind a pair of tall tree trunks, turning them a warm orange. Thin branches in the path of the sunburst shine white. There is a dancing, flowing movement throughout as branches reach and weave. The millions of little tree leaves are like gemstones filling the space with their shifting glimmers of light.

In the shadows, the leaves are a rich emerald green, the tree trunks nearly black.

The saturated colors of this painting are like real life, but better. The warm red, orange and yellow alongside the deep green and the brilliant white of the sunlight work together to create a jubilant, content feeling that lifts the mood of any space.
