"Transcendence" is a quality giclee reproduction from an original watercolor painting by Cathy Hillegas. It depicts a golden maple tree on a sunny October day, bathed in sunlight. The view, looking up through the branches toward the sky gives it an unusual composition. My mother planted this tree 56 years ago and it still stands in her yard. The original painting has over 200 hours of work in it.

This painting was featured in "Splash 13: Alternative Approaches, the Best of Watercolor" and has been chosen for the cover art (published by North Light Books,2012). This painting was accepted into the 2012 American Watercolor Society Exhibition in New York and was one of only 40 paintings chosen for the traveling show, which toured galleries and museums around the country after the New York exhibition closed.

The image size of this print is 11.7" x 16" on 13" x 19" paper. It is hand signed and numbered. The edition is limited to 500. The photo shows how it will be signed (your number will be different).

Watermark (Cathy Hillegas Watercolors) does not appear on prints.

Print is unmatted but you may add a white conservation mat and foamcore backing for an additional $20 at checkout. Matted prints will be 16x20 and will fit standard frames.
