Cuesta Park Annex - Summer
Oil on canvas, 16" x 20"

I love summer. I love the heat, the light and all the flowers and vegetables that grow now. I love the way the the fields turn golden and the shadows seem to dance with color.

Cuesta Park Annex is one of the last "natural" pieces of land left in our city. It is easy to stand here and imagine how the area looked a hundred years ago. Before the powers that be step in and change things ("for the better," they say), it is good to walk here, listening to the birds, the squirrels and the daytime crickets. Very peaceful.

This painting is on wrap-around canvas, painted on all sides. No need for additional framing.
