About the Painting

Driving through Carmel Valley is a peaceful way to escape into nature. The oak tree-dotted hills cast multi-hued shadows across the landscape, most beautiful at sunset or dawn. This painting captures the colors of California wine country with thick, impressionistic brush strokes.

This painting was created on linen board, and it arrives ready to hang in a custom-made frame.
