A painting by Jim Lamb, "Back Bay Beauty, 2018" is an oil on linen painting executed in a palette primarily of earth tones, lavenders and blues and depicts a quiet moment in the back bay in Newport Beach. This piece represents one of Lamb’s classic landscapes, with his distinctive swift brushstroke and monumental cliffs — most of which are dappled in the bright, early morning Newport sunlight. The white egrets peppered throughout the foreground add charm to the piece. Lamb’s brushstrokes are built up in almost geometric form, giving this picture a strength and richness that is uncommon among California Impressionists. Signed lower left, "J. Lamb."
