Monterey cypress trees dance together in a rhythm of color and light, in this contemporary impressionist oil painting. The brush strokes are lively and expressive, drawing the eye through the picture, while the contrasting values add an emotional quality to the work. This painting was inspired by a recent trip to the Monterey peninsula and the 17-mile drive.

This painting was created on 1-1/2"-deep canvas, with the painting continued around the sides of the painting. The piece will arrive framed in a 23-kt gold leaf floater frame, allowing you to see the full edges of the canvas.
