Light over the Hills



48 x 36 in


Contact Gallery

This painting is in the permanent collection at the Mattatuck Museum, in Waterbury, Connecticut.

Minute by minute, the dawn light changes over these rolling California hillsides. Driving through the winding roads as the sun cleared the horizon revealed vista after vista of "must-paint" landscape.
