"SUMMER TIDES" Oil Painting by Kathy O'Leary

Humboldt Bay on the north coast of California is truly beautiful. It has remained relatively undeveloped in many areas around the bay providing lots of material for a landscape painter. This is a scene where the Elk River estuary joins the bay. Here, acres of tidal and marsh grasses turn gold and orange in the late Summer, almost glowing when the sun is low. Its a place I never grow tired of painting. This painting is 8 x 10 on canvas covered panel. SOLD


  1. i really like how the blues & oranges complement each other yet flow together into the distance - lovely! thank you!

  2. The reflections are masterful.
