This painting was inspired by the beautiful scenery at Adelaida Winery in Paso Robles, California. The early morning light filtered through the oak leaves and glittered on the summer gold grasses beneath the oaks. The brush strokes in this painting are loose and paintery, an expressionistic celebration of color and light.
This painting will be included in The Orange Show at The Erin Hanson Gallery during the month of October. The piece is available for purchase now, but your painting will be shipped at the end of the exhibition.
This painting has been framed in an Open Impressionist frame. These frames are one-of-a-kind, hand carved in the US and hand-gilded with 23kt gold leaf. Open Impressionsist frames are a beautiful blend of classic American impressionist frames and contemporary "floater frames," just as my painting style is a unique blend of the classic and contemporary. The frame is designed to stand away from the edge of the canvas, leaving a 1/4" gap around the painting.
