Please check out two new watercolor pieces by Marty Wilson!
In the artist's own words:
'The steep mountains dropping dramatically into the sea along the Big Sur coastline are dramatic sights. There is a nice juxtapostion of the wild ruggedness of the terrain with man's attempt to find refuge and tame a small part of it. The circling hawks keep watch. '
