About the Painting

The smooth rolling hills of Paso Robles catch the warm light of dawn in this petite oil painting. The impasto brush strokes add texture and energy to the piece, drawing you into the impressionistic reality of your imagination.

"Dawning Colors" was created on fine linen board, and the painting arrives framed in a hand-made and gilded plein air frame.
