About the Painting

Along the very northern tip of Washington, there is a long spit of land that traverses a mile out into the ocean, forming Dungeness Bay. The pine trees growing at the edge of the bluff overlooking the bay area wind-sculpted and alive with character.

This painting was done on linen board, and it has been framed in a black and gold plein-air frame.
