This painting is by impressionist artist Ami Magill from Carmel / Monterey, California. Her work hangs in Pebble Beach, Monterey galleries and several hotels in the Carmel & Monterey area. She has also been commissioned to do a mural & the cover of a cookbook for a popular local restaurant. This oil painting depicts the beach or the mouth of the Carmel River as it meets the Pacific Ocean at sunset. You can see the sand dunes from the Monterey peninsula in the forefront of the sun. I love the colors of sea & sand. It is stretched canvas (on board) and is completely painted if you prefer to not frame. It measures 21 1/2" x 24". Signed on the back by the artist..
