Vivid layers of color scintillate on the canvas, glowing with the beautiful light of central California wine country. The thick layers of buttercream-colored paint can only be described as "juicy." This painting captures the life and motion of the wide outdoors, inspired by Carmel Valley, California.

This painting was done on 3/4" canvas, and the piece has been framed in a traditional gold frame.
