Southern California's iconic rolling hills are most beautiful at dawn, with the rich colors of sunrise cover the entire landscape in cadmium hues. This impressionist painting captures the beauty of this fleeting moment of color.

"Red Dawn" was created on 1-1/2" stretched linen, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame, ready to hang.
