Fort Ross California original oil painting is painted with a palette knife and a brush and is 100% hand made. The painting is one of a kind and never been copied from someone else's work. All my landscapes/seascapes are from what I personally saw, found it interesting, and wanted to share with people. One of my favorite places in California is Mendocino County. I can't stop enjoying the breathtaking views of the ocean, the cliffs, and the woods. A strong wind from the ocean drives the clouds, churns the coastal waters, and combs the bushes growing near the shore. 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.
