A dramatic sky bursts with color behind this grove of California palms. This painting captures all the life and movement of a bright and brilliant sunrise. The brush strokes are loose and impressionistic, alive with color and texture.

This painting has been framed in a gold leaf floater frame. The painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the edges of the canvas painted as a continuation of the piece.
