I painted this following a drive down Highway One just south of San Francisco.  During the drive, the sunlight over the Pacific Ocean would break through the clouds, creating these light streams off the beach, creating subtle translucent shades of blue, gold and teal.  This is a 3 panel painting  with each panel measuring 48x36 inches. It is painted on a gallery wrap canvas, with the image continuing around the sides.  It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Sheila

Sheila spends many hours studying clouds from the cockpit of her sailboat in the south San Francisco Bay. She’s frequently blessed with beaming sunrises and storms that create beautiful displays of light streaming across the salt flats or shimmering off the nearby coastal mountain range. Sheila’s award-winning paintings have been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the United States and Europe. She has received recognition from the National Arts Appreciation Program, as well as put on a prestigious show of work at L’Espace Bateau Lavoir in Paris.
