Contact Gallery

Rollicking color and impasto brushstrokes capture the vivacity of Paso Robles in the springtime. The lush green of the rolling hills is a bright contrast against the dark hues of the California oak trees. The painting has a natural rhythm and motion that mirrors the beauty found out of doors.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the sides of the canvas.
