About the Painting

Mellow colors of a summer dawn wash over this painting of Mariposa wine country. The abstract shapes of the California oak trees stand starkly against the distant rolling hills. Each brush stroke is alive with motion, forming an impressionistic mosaic of color and texture across the canvas.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. It has been framed in a hand-carved Open Impressionist frame.
