About the Painting

Warm colored sands against cerulean waters make for a compelling composition in this painting of Monterey, California. The brush strokes in this painting are loose and impressionistic, creating a mosaic of color and texture across the canvas.

This painting has been framed in a contemporary gold floater frame finished in 23kt gold leaf.
