Carmel Valley is painted in beautiful hues of an early California summer. The lush brush strokes are thick and impressionistic, adding additional dimension to the piece. The tall California redwoods are a beautiful contrast against a sunset sky.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges for a finished look. This painting has been framed in a carved floater frame.
