About the Painting

Lone Cypress stands on a rocky embankment, on Carmel's famous 17 Mile Drive. The setting sun makes the sky glow with vivid hues. Each brush stroke is thick and textured, alive with movement.

"Cypress Standing" is an original oil painting on linen. The piece arrives framed in a gold plein air frame.
