Description of Work:
“Horizontal composition of dunes and sky. Horizon line is approximately one-fourth from the bottom of the canvas. The foreground is an expanse of soft mottled red-brown and beige sand dunes/grass that do not mound. The mid-ground has a bright line of white representing water in the far distance. The background is a large light blue-grey sky with soft clouds emanating from the horizon line left and spanning to the top of the canvas and over to the top right canvas. The clouds have almost no sharp edge and bleed into the sky.”
