This California eucalyptus stands before a breaking dawn sky, its branches forming abstract shapes across the brightening sky. The brush strokes are thick and lively, full of motion and energy. This contemporary impressionist style is known as Open Impressionism.

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