It’s the polar opposite of the view I see outside my office window right now: gray rainy day, with a distant panorama of the brown summer California hills. Wish we could combine the rain with the green.

This painting is so uniquely, intensely Californian. I am not normally a fan of landscapes, unless they are English, but as a California native, this one is irresistible.
