Making the drive from the Santa Clara Valley over to Santa Cruz, one has to take Hwy 17 which is a windy road with redwoods on all sides most of the way. It is a beautiful drive, and also dangerous. I tend to hold my breath most of the 25 minutes it takes to get from one side of the "Hill" to the other.
This is oil on stretched canvas. Measures 6x6 inches with the sides painted for a frameless option.
I am a painter. I have loved painting all my life. I studied Art and Art History at UC Berkeley, and have been painting professionally ever since. I have shown in galleries and museums all over California, and have sold hundreds of paintings all over the world, from New York, to Finland and Qatar. I am inspired by nature, color and emotion. Hopefully you will get a sense of calm, happiness, or wonder from what I paint. I'm not out to make political statements with my work, but to express joy and gratitude of life through the medium of oil paints. Claire Whitehead
