The clouds part over the coastline in Northern California, illuminating the darkening waters with swirls of color. The late afternoon light is tinged with hues of purple and green. The thickly applied oil paint creates rhythms within the painting, leading your eye through the dramatic scene.

"Clouded Light" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece arrives framed in a contemprorary floater frame finished with burnished sterling silver metal leaf.
