Original oil painting by Carl Olson, Jr.
18"x14" oil on canvas.
This is the first in a new series of abstract landscapes in oil. As spring gets underway, I can't help but think of the Emerald Coast along the beaches of the Florida pan-handle. Soon the waters of the Gulf will warm and thousands of visitors will delight in the emerald waters.
I use palette knives to loosely apply the thick, luscious oil paint, to create layers of texture upon the canvas.
