Swirling colors of ocean foam mingle together in this impressionist oil painting of Mendocino, California. This out-of-the-way destination in northern California is the epitome of coastal beauty. From the richly color cliffs to the aquamarine waters, from the movement of the waters below to the feeling of wind in the air, this painting captures the essence of Mendocino.

"Mendocino Waters" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. The piece arrives framed in a hand-carved, gilded floater frame.
