This painting was started while painting with a group of friends, but finished in my studio. It is a scene from Pt. Lobos State Park near Carmel that I have painted on location before. I love these cypress trees and the rocky cliff that they grow on with the view of the ocean beyond. It is one of my favorites.
When the painting was finished I ordered a custom frame, a moulding I had used before, since it was an odd size (16×9). When the frame arrived it wasn’t what I had ordered. However, it was even perfect on the painting, even better than the one I had ordered! I called Omega who I had ordered the frame from and sent them a photo. They didn’t know what moulding it was and had not seen it before. Amazing, right! So I delivered it to my gallery in Claremont, CA (Hillside Fine Art) and Steve Harrison, the owner, sold it in a week. You know how it is….sometimes you just have a feeling about a certain painting and you almost want to keep it! This was one of those! http://sherylknight.com
