This abstract landscape piece features a painterly rendering of the Pacific Coast Highway, the famed stretch of road that runs along the California coast. In this work, I began exploring the notion of taking the scenic route by utilizing a nature-inspired, bird's-eye perspective. Here, flowing paint washes collide with thick, impasto paint applications to reveal a unique path among crashing surf, lush greenery, and rugged cliffs, for a piece suggestive of the energetic movement and momentum of travel toward a beautiful destination, and the thrill and adventure of the journey along the way.

The use of surprising color harmonies in a simple geometric organization creates a modern dynamic in this composition. I am inspired by eclectic textures, and used rough brushstrokes to achieve the desired aesthetic of the piece.
