About the Painting

Pastel colors of early dawn give this landscape a wash of sherbet hues. The dramatic lighting and thick brush strokes create a painting full of life and motion. It is scenery and light like this that drags the artist out of bed and out exploring at 5am before dawn!

This painting was created on a gallery-depth canvas with the painting continued around the edges. The painting will arrive in a beautiful hardwood floater frame, ready to hang. The second photograph above shows how the piece looks under gallery spot lighting.

Exhibited: "Impressions in Oil", Studios on the Park. Paso Robles, CA. 2015
