Contact Gallery

The redwood forest near Mendocino, in Northern California, is captured on canvas with thickly applied brush strokes and vibrant color. The crisscrossing of the branches creates a mosaic pattern of light and shadow among the leaves.

"Redwoods" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece arrives framed in a custom-made gold floating frame.
