About the Painting

Radiant sunset light filters down onto the seascape near Monterey. The wind-sculpted cypress trees reach out across the rocky bay. Each brush stroke is a statement of color and motion, merging together to form a scintillating mosaic of light and texture across the canvas.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges for a finished look. Framing is available upon request.
