About the Painting

This painting captures the stately pines along the northern Washington coast, blown and carved by westerlies, magestic and strong. The slate gray ocean reflects the colors of the Northwestern sky, creating a sense of balance in the painting. The brush strokes are loose and impressionsitic, forming a mosaic of color and texture across the canvas.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. It has been framed in a carved gold floater frame and arrives ready to hang.
