Contact Gallery

A brilliant sunset bursts across this Northwestern sky, lighting up the rippling waters below, while the trees in the foreground darken as dusk approaches. The impasto brush strokes are thick and impressionistic, alive with color and movement.

"Gilded Clouds" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame.
