Early morning brings a glow of color over the Carmel coastline. The rocky waters reflect the lavender and opal colors of a misty dawn. Each impressionistic brushstroke adds texture and motion to the overall composition of the piece.

"Carmel Dawn" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece arrives framed in a 23K gold floater frame.
