I painted "Purple Barn - Half Moon Bay" after heading down Highway 92 on a rainy morning. Out past a field of colorful flowers, a barn roof appeared to be blue-purple in the reflected light of the sun breaking through the clouds. The overall visual effect was stunning and lush in color and pattern!
Sheila spends many hours studying clouds from the cockpit of her sailboat on the California coast. She's frequently blessed with beaming sunrises and storms that create beautiful displays of light streaming across the ocean 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, and her work has been exhibited at the prestigious L'Espace Bateau Lavoir in Paris.

Sheila, we were thrilled to get Coastal Clouds 29 just in time for Christmas. The painting is more beautiful than the photo! Your ability to capture light is amazing and the colors of the painting have so much depth that you feel like you are really viewing the clouds above!
