"WINTER MORNING ON THE COAST", Oil Painting by Kathy O'Leary
This painting was done after a recent morning drive around our Northern California coast. This spot is just south of a small coastal village called Trinidad. It was the soft atmospheric sunny morning looking through the sculptural shapes of the trees to the rocks beyond that caught my attention. Like most late winter scenes on our far north coast, the colors and light are muted and show everything in much closer tones/hues than found later in the season. This piece is 8 x 10, and done on panel.
