Big Sur California Landscape Oil Painting
This original landscape oil painting on canvas was inspired by the seascape of Big Sur, California. In the early summer, the mountains turn a golden hue and the wild lupin flowers flood the hillsides and make a stunning colorful contrast against the turquoise crashing ocean. I painted this landscape painting while in lived in Big Sur, California.
My approach to painting is fluid, spiritual and imagination driven. As a painter I seek to capture the experiential sensation of a place and time rather than a photo realistic image. Each of my paintings has a unique story, designed to inspire conversations in the space it adorns.

Dana Richardson (b. 1985, California) earned a BFA degree in painting and video from School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She studied art internationally at the Prague Art Institute, Czech Republic and the University of Barcelona, Spain. Her collection of female figure paintings arise from a desire to inspire women to connect to their deep spirit, to kindle self-confidence and pursuit of creative ideas, and to celebrate strength in individuality.

Her abstract landscape paintings depict natural disasters and raise awareness about the global epidemic of climate change. Dana lives and works in California.

ETHICAL, RESPONSIBLE, & SUSTAINABLE PAINTINGS
Richardson is an environmentally conscious contemporary painter. A vital aspect of her ethics is to source sustainable, non-toxic, earth pigments from California and France. Her studio practice involves hand mulling earth pigments, organic walnut oil, and citrus solvents. She paints on high quality, locally made, organic cotton, hemp, and linen canvas. Richardson’s ethically made oil paintings resonate a natural, organic, earthy color palette.
