"COAST DUNE AND ICE PLANT", Oil Painting by Kathy O'Leary

The impetus for this painting came from a recent trip to Carmel By The Sea. The dunes on the edge of the city are quite beautiful. They are covered with a wide variety of shrubs and low lying plants, in addition to the ubiquitous Monterey Cypress and coastal pines. This Autumn day was overcast so the complementary reds and greens of the Iceplant were quite pronounced against the white sand. This painting is 9 x 12 and was done on linen covered panel. SOLD
