WHERE THE MOUNTAINS MEET THE SEA, 6X8, OIL
California is such a beautiful place. Every time I go the word "rugged" is in my mind during the whole trip. I think the weather, the sea,the landscape, the people and the animals all seem to be larger than life. Like everyone and everything there is tough. Not to say it is a bad thing...I love it, but maybe it is a little tougher there than on the east coast where everything is pink and teal and the waves are 2 feet instead of 20.
Of couse my time has been in Northern California, never got south of Carmel, so maybe it weenie's out as you go south.
This scene is from an image by Shelley Smart. If you have not visited her blog "A Year at the Beach" you must go. She is a wonderful artist and photographer and did a project of photographing the beach every day for a year. I hope she approves of this painting.
CarolSchiffStudio or CarolOnEdge and purchase a painting. I have several choices in my "make me an offer" section.......
and then hop on over to Art by Karena where you can get a chance on winning this painting just by following her instructions on the bottom of my interview.
