Cypress tree painting in the California impressionism style, by Erin Hanson

Cypress at Monterey



30 x 42 in



Contact Gallery

I am always drawn to paint the famous cypress trees of the Monterey peninsula. Their dramatic, wind-shaped branches are like beautiful abstract sculptures. Their pearly bark seems to reflect all the colors of the sun, from bright white to sherbet pink and tangerine orange. This painting captures a grove of cypress trees growing along Pebble Beach's 17 Mile Drive.

"Cypress at Monterey" is an original oil painting created on gallery-depth canvas, and framed in a hand-made, closed corner floater frame.
