"The Back Country"

Spring has given way to Summer here in San Diego, and today is scheduled to be a sizzler. With temps in the triple digits, our beautiful back country will slowly make the transition from green to shades of gold and sepia. I drive past this wonderful old olive grove each time I make the trip east to my favorite casino. These graceful, twisting trunks have been turning my head each time I drive past, and I finally decided to stop the car and spend a little time snapping away with my camera. Something about the interesting shapes of trees always keeps me coming back. I expect several more paintings from this area in the coming weeks.

"The Back Country" is painted on 1-1/2" thick gallery wrapped canvas, with sides painted black, it is ready to hang, unframed. You may purchase here and have it shipped to your door, or purchase here and pick up at my studio/gallery at Liberty Station, Pt. Loma, and I will refund the shipping. $1295 + $40 to ship anywhere in the continental US or Canada. Updated 8/16/14: Sold...and ArtWalk NTC!
