About the Painting

This painting was inspired by the coastal landscapes near Big Sur, California. The morning fog gives this painting a dramatic and beautiful atmosphere. The impasto brush strokes capture the feeling of movement and light felt when you are outdoors in the fresh coastal air.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" deep canvas with the painting continued around the edges for a finished look. The painting has been framed in a carved open-impressionist frame in 22kt gold leaf.
