Like many of the California Impressionists preceding him, Jim Lamb for years has been allured to the Southern California coast to capture mother nature’s unique beauty, character and color. The numerous rock outcroppings in Laguna Beach provide the perfect vantage points for painting majestic views of the ocean and cliffs. In “Midday Laguna Beach” the artist captures the scene of the local bathers as they enjoy their time amongst the sun washed cliffs and beautiful surf. Signed “J. Lamb” lower right, the piece is housed in a beautiful hand-gilded gold frame.
