About the Painting

The coastal mists in Paso Robles, California, create beautiful light patterns among the oak trees in the early morning. The sun, still low on the horizon, casts long rays of refracted color across the landscape, transforming the hillside into a rainbow medley of color. The brush strokes in this painting are loose and impressionistic, capturing the movement of transient light.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. The piece arrives framed and ready to hang.
