This was from a photo I took while traveling up the California coast in 2005. I started the painting a number of years ago and put it away. Then came back to it this summer as I really loved the look of the bolder emerging from the yellow grass (California as a lot of yellow grass in the fall). Unfortunately, background was giving me lots of trouble. Finally was able to get it looking the way I wanted.
