The colors and patterns of the coastal sky seem to change moment by moment, and the subtle nuances of hue and value are captivating!  This is a captured moment of light streaming through the clouds beyond Pillar Point north of Half Moon Bay.  The painting continues around the sides of the gallery wrapped canvas so that framing is not required.  It is varnished, wired, and ready to hang.
