Oil on canvas 20" x 16" Stinson Beach, California New. He paints every day. He surfs as much as he can. And he takes inspiration from the dramatic natural landscapes right outside his studio on the coast of Northern California. The beautiful color relationships and use of broken space in John Bucklin's work have a loose, natural quality that's both striking and soothing. And then there are the frames. Each is handcrafted by John himself.
