The 17-mile drive is amazing to drive in the early morning, watching the warm dawn light sparkling on the myriad cypress trees. This painting captures the emotional quality of Pebble Beach with vibrant color and expressive brush strokes that are alive with texture and motion.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting has been framed in a gold floater frame.
