About the Painting

Spring greens and summer yellows are brought to life in this oil painting. Cool shadows contrast against the warm light, creating a rhythm of color and texture within the piece. Each impressionistic brush stroke is alive with motion.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges for a finished look.
