San Diego is a 12”x12” original palette knife painting by Krista Schumacher. 


San Diego was inspired by my home city. As someone who walks the coast every day, I wanted to capture the cacti along the coast, because to me, it is the embodiment of “where the desert meets the sea.” In my painting, I contrasted the rougher textures of the cacti, with the smoother strokes of the sky and ocean. Additionally, the deep reds and pinks of the sky juxtapose the green of the cactus, giving a sense of drama.
