About the Painting

The Monterey coastline is beautiful at dawn, the pink and red rocks catching the warm sunlight. The swirling, foamy waters below catch the light and turn ever-changing colors of aqua and turquoise. Each brush stroke adds to the overall motion of the painting.

"Dawning Coast" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame in 23kt gold leaf.
