"WINDSWEPT" by Kathy O'Leary

This is a scene from my recent travels along the Southern California coastal regions. Cypress trees are everywhere along the coast. Standing on a coastal headland, these trees grew leaning inland in response to the constant buffeting of the winds on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. The combination of the trees against the softness of the grasses and the moisture muted hills in the distance created the kind of image I love to paint. The painting is 8 x 10 on canvas covered panel. SOLD
