Magical color glows from the canvas in this oil painting of California wine country. The rolling hills form a mosaic of color patterns behind the stately oak tree, while golden-hued grasses dance in the early summer light. The brush strokes are thick and impressionistic, alive with energy and motion, while yet conveying a sense of peace and beauty.
