About the Painting

Driving high on the coastal cliffs of central California, you can see the wide vista spreading out beneath you, the rocky shoreline catching the early morning light and casting long blue shadows across the aqua-blue ocean. This large painting captures the magnificent expanse of this vista, the thickly applied brush strokes creating a mosaic dance of color across the canvas.

"Coastal Vista" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. The piece has been framed in a hand-carved, open impressionist frame.
