Shades of Summer



24 x 32 in



Contact Gallery

Rich golden browns and shades of violet meld together in this painting of central California. The summer colors seem to glow with an inner light, while the thickly applied oil paint draws you through the landscape in a rhythmic motion.

This painting was created on a gallery-depth canvas with the painting continued around the edges. The painting will arrive in a beautiful hardwood floater frame, ready to hang.

Exhibited: "Impressions in Oil", Studios on the Park. Paso Robles, CA. 2015
