About the Painting

Apricot-colored hills are formed from thick layers of impasto oil paint, the hills speckled with California oak trees. The late spring grasses curve and dance in the wind, pulling the eye deeper into the painting. This landscape captures the fleeting beauty and vibrancy of an early dawn over California wine country.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting is framed in a gold floater frame with black sides. It arrives wired and ready to hang.
