Sunset on the East Bay California original oil painting is painted with a palette knife and a brush and is 100% hand made. I just looked out the window and saw that a massive cloud was resting on the hilltop at the time when the day nearly ended, and the night hasn't yet come to its full force. The sun already disappeared, and the full moon appeared instead, shedding a faint light on the cloud, the hills, and the trees. This was a magnificent view. This painting will brighten any room and can be a great gift. All sides are painted. The signature is available on the front and back of the painting.
