About the Painting

Exploring along 17-Mile Drive in Carmel, I saw this beautiful vista of soft pinks and cool ocean blues. I stood between two stacks of boulders, peering out towards the distant curve of the bay, a cool cypress tree above me, enjoying the changing colors of sunset.

"Carmel Vista" was created on linen board. The painting arrives framed in a plein air frame, ready to hang.
