Piece description from the artist

Painted outdoors on three consecutive afternoons in early November, 2008 in the Journal Square neighborhood of Jersey City, NJ. (formerly Old Bergen, the earliest Dutch settlement in these parts). This brilliantly foliated maple sapling stood out starkly against the backdrop of the Old Bergen Cemetery, Vroom Street, black locusts and bradford pears. City trees are a major theme in my watercolor portfolio.I limit the sessions to no more than one and one-half hours of steady light on bright days and up to two hours on overcast days. In this case, I needed to work quickly to avoid impending rain.
