This painting is based on a storm off the California coast that I saw one spring day while walking my dog along the bluffs just south of Half Moon Bay. I stood in awe as the clouds danced in a kaleidoscope of colors for 40 minutes, and then suddenly disappeared. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the image continues around the sides. It comes wired and ready to hang.
