Contact Gallery

A foggy covering slowly lifts from this California landscape, the cool filtered light casting subtle shadows across the winding roads and cultivated hills. The texture of the brush strokes gives an added dimension to the painting, its changing texture inviting the eye to move throughout the painting, exploring the juxtaposition of color and contrast.

This painting was created on a gallery-depth canvas with the painting continued around the edges. The painting will arrive in a dark hardwood floater frame, ready to hang.

Exhibited: Cowgirl Up! Art from the Other Half of the West, Desert Caballeros Western Museum, Wickenburg, AZ, 2016.
