Spruce Island


Size 2019 | 20"h x 20"w | oil on canvas by Lauren Forcella Categories , , , , , ,

This painting is a small gem I brought back from hiking the southern Oregon coast this winter. Here on this edge of the continent, the beach was protected by a colony of rock islands, each capped with hardy spruce facing the wind and rain. This sunny moment is captured in blocks of color and shadow, the graceful spruce a harp in the wind. Done on a 1.5-inch-deep gallery-wrapped canvas, this painting arrives ready to hang.
