Lighted Grass

Long waves of grass tumble in the wind in this painting of Mariposa, the beautiful wine country west of Yosemite National Park. The spring green grass is alive with color, drenched from the El Nino rain. This painting is alive with impasto texture from the oil paint, which adds a beautiful dimension to the painting.

This painting was created on 1-1/2"-deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. It has been framed in a hand-carved Open Impressionist frame. Read more about the painting's details here.
