Helping to found the Carmel Art Association in 1927, Morgan was instrumental in promoting the art of the Monterey/Carmel area. She and Evelyn McCormick had been friends from their California School of Design days and often visited each others' studios. Her palette was more subdued than McCormick's and featured larger blocks of color, a seen in this coastal view. This scene is particularly engaging as it draws the viewer from the shadowed foreground onto the sunny dunes beyond. The closely cropped oaks create a sense of immediacy.

Formerly accessioned as 1984.1. Painting identified by the GSA as originally from the WPA program, and belonging to the US Government.
