I visited Mendocino for the first time this summer, and I was struck by the bold shapes of the rocky coastline and the deep rich color of the landscape. I saw wildflowers there I had never seen before, and the dramatic weather changes gave me some great cloudscapes for painting!
This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting will be framed in a custom-made, hand-carved floater frame, and it arrives wired and easy to hang.
Our hearts are with the residents and businesses impacted by the recent fires that have spread across the Northern California wine regions. Erin just recently spent time exploring Mendocino and Napa for inspiration and was sad to see that the very landscapes she had just been painting are now burnt dramatically to the ground. It is our goal to help the area reemerge from this tragedy and will donate 10% of the proceeds for this painting Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund and Sonoma Humane Society.
For the next 30 days we will also be donating 100% of all proceeds from her California Wine Country book sales to these hardworking and much valued non-profits.
