Half Moon Bay California original oil painting 16 x 20 in is made with a palette knife on stretched canvas. Huge sandstone cliff towers over the ocean. Lush greenery on top of the hill intertwined by the branches. Their trunks are twisted so densely that no light comes through them and they look lifeless and gray. And only on their tops, where the light can access, the leaves are green. Heavy winds from the ocean bent the trees low and they continue to grow in such an unusual shape. Ocean waves run ashore. The foggy horizon line is unclear. The light blue sky looks appealing thanks to various shades of blue. Rare bushes are trying to catch on to the soft crumbling hill surface.
