This Mary DeNeale Morgan tempera-on-cardboard painting exemplifies the artist-s interest in diverse materials. The scene is typical of the windswept coastal cypress trees which attracted and inspired so many artists to come to Monterey and paint. This seemingly peaceful scene is infused with energy by the contrasting warm and cool colors, and by the tangled branches of the cypress tumbling down the rocks.
