About the Painting

Camping at Big Sur River is a beautiful and peaceful experience. The riverbed is filled with rounded rocks and boulders, and the oak trees growing along the river bank envelop the trails in cool shade. This painting captures the contrasting colors of fall with thick, impressionistic brush strokes that are alive with color and texture.

"River Running" is an original oil painting created on stretched canvas. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame, ready to hang.
