California Lake impasto original oil painting 12x16 in is painted with a palette knife and is 100% hand-made. It was rainy last week in Northern California. I went to the neighborhood park when the rain has just stopped but the sky was still holding its clouds and was mostly gloomy with some signs of enlightenment in the distance. The water was still. The grass changed its color from yellow-fall to light-green in some spots, thanks to the rain. Just evergreens in the distance always hold their color. Peace and quiet calm the soul and the mind.
