Shades of Blue 24×30 sold


Unframed size: 24″ x 30″; framed size 30″ x 36″


This painting developed in my studio from a smaller plein air study made on the California coast, within a state park. On a sunny day, the waters here are remarkable shades of blues and greens. Particularly where there is sand beneath shallow waters, the teal, jade and ultramarine blues come out. As I was looking north at the headlands in Big Sur, I felt again how small my part is in the greater whole. I am humbled and thankful to be here.” – mh

If you choose to purchase it with this frame, the framed painting will be shipped mounted in the frame and fully wired, ready to unpack and hang immediately.
