Cadmium Dawn



14 x 11 in



Contact Gallery

Standing at the edge of the Monterey Penninsula at dawn, you can see beautiful rocky seascapes stretching far in both directions. The distant curve of the California coastline turns blue and purple beneath the dawning sky.

"Cadmium Dawn" was created on fine linen board, and the painting arrives framed in a hand-made and gilded plein air frame.
