COASTAL PINES & CHAPARRAL, Oil Painting by Kathy O'Leary

This is a scene from a recent trip to the Mendocino Coast of Northern California. Just a mile inland from the ocean are coastal hills often thick with large old pines and dense chaparral. The coastal moisture interspersed with sun creates a beautiful softness to the atmosphere which I tried to capture here. The painting is 8 x 10, on canvas covered wood panel. SOLD
