About the Painting

Rich layers of orange paint build up to an exciting depiction of Paso Robles' rolling hills and rounded oak trees. The purple thistles in the foreground stand out in vibrant contrast against the mandarin backdrop of hills. This oil painting was created with juicy, impasto brush strokes and a loose, impressionistic style.

This painting has been framed in an Open Impressionist frame. These frames are one-of-a-kind, hand carved in the US and hand-gilded with 23kt gold leaf. Read more about the painting's details here.

Exhibited The Orange Show, The Erin Hanson Gallery, Los Angeles, CA. 2016.
