About the Painting

The cool hues of early dawn are illuminated suddenly by a streak of sunlight across the tops of the aspen groves, bringing in the bright colors of sunlight into the landscape. The brush strokes in this oil painting are thick and impressionistic, alive with motion and contrasting textures.

"Aspen Dawn" was created on 1/8" linen board. The painting arrives framed in a black and gold plein air frame.
