About the Painting

Dusky hues of purple and turquoise glow on this canvas of Mendocino, California. The textured spaces between the branches of the cypress tree create a sense of motion in the scene. Each brightly colored brush stroke glimmers with light against the dark underpainting.

"Cypress Pines" was created on gallery-depth canvas, in a modern impressionist style known as Open Impressionism. The brush strokes are loose and painterly, created with thickly applied oil paint. The painting has been framed in a hand-made, burnished silver floater frame.
