Ocean Cypress


Ocean Cypress, 12 x 16, L. Daniel
.
This weathered cypress looks like it has survived many seasons of wind and ocean spray. I was drawn to its gnarly limbs and interesting negative shapes, and, of course, to the ocean-blue in the distance!

Beautiful painting! This cypress has such an interesting shape. Looks like an area with thousands of scenes just waiting to be painted! :-)

I really like this view, nice compostion, an ddark and light in the cypress tree makes a very nice contrast.

Love the addition of low fence line.
