"BARN AMONG THE DUNES" oil paintng by Kathy O'Leary

Living on California's far north coast gives coast residents, photographers and painters the opportunity to view, walk, and paint some of California's most interesting and varied sand dunes. This scene is in a protected dune area in the community of Manila, on Humboldt Bay's Samoa Peninsula. The painting was done on panel and measures 8 x 10.


  1. Love your light as air brush work and color combination.

  2. Love your work!

    The barn among the dunes is terrific; nice composition, wonderful brush strokes like the "terry oats" says...

  4. Kathy, Congratulations on your two paintings in Art Collector Magazine!

    For me, 'Coastal Pine' in particular transmits the strong spirituality
    that comes through your personality.
