This is a painting of the passing storms on the Pacific Ocean one Spring day as I walked my Chocolate Lab along the bluffs south of Half Moon Bay, California. The distant sky lit up with a kaleidoscope of color! This magical scene lasted for over 40 minutes and then was just as quickly gone. This painting is a triptych (3 canvases) with the image continuing around on all sides. It is wired and ready to hang.
