Description This painting was inspired by many hikes I took in breath taking views in Southern California where I reside. Due to the unusual amount of rain we had in Spring of 2017, the usually golden brown rolling hills have turned orange, yellow, green and purple! Poppies, lupines, mustard...the colors were just spectacular. I just could not believe how beautiful my home state could be. I will cherish the memory of this beautiful spring.Whether I am painting on location or from photographs I take on my hikes, I spend many hours walking, observing and feeling before I start my work. Nothing makes me happier than when someone connects with one of my paintings like this. I have poured my heart and soul into this painting and I hope you can appreciate and enjoy it as much as I did.This original painting was created using professional quality oil paint on a 100% cotton canvas panel. It comes with artist signed Certificate of Authenticity and it is sold unframed. It will easily fit into a standard size frame (U.S.) or can be displayed on a small desk top easel without a frame. The artwork is signed with the initials on the front, and signed & dated on the reverse.
