Driving south along the California 1 highway leads you to breathtaking vista after breathtaking vista. This early morning view was captured in thick oils and an expressionistic stroke of the brush. The luscious colors are vibrant and alive with motion.

This painting was created on gallery-depth canvas, with the painting continued around the sides of the canvas.
