Coastal Muse 24×36 – sold


Unframed size: 24″ x 36″; framed size 32″ x 44″


“This painting was the largest and final in a series I made depicting this area. I find in this painting that the path down and the curving beach make a pleasant s-curve composition. The viewer is positioned overlooking the beach from the dunes near Pescadero. The bright flowers in the foreground contrast with the fog off in the distance, giving depth to the painting.” – mh

“Last year, I painted a series inspired by this beach and surroundings in differing sizes and formats. Summer heat and sun bring out wildflowers in abundance. I visited first to take photos, and returned to make a first study on site. Several more plein air paintings came from further visits (such as Above the Mist), as well as compositions like this one, which developed entirely in my studio over a period spanning several months.” – mh
