Contact Gallery

This painting was inspired by a springtime view of Highway 1 near Big Sur, California. The rainbow hues of the coastal mountains fade into the distance, a beautiful contrast behind the yellow mustard flowers. Each brush stroke is thick and impressionistic, creating a mosaic of color and texture across the canvas.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges for a finished look. The piece arrives framed in a gold floater frame, ready to hang.
