36×48″, acrylic, 1.5″ gallery-wrapped canvas
A little fun play off the (California) Gold Rush which began in 1848 when James W. Marshall found the shiny rock at Sutter’s Mill. The effects on the economy were substantial as over 300,000 people came to California (where the 49ers gets the name!) seeking their fortune and creating boomtowns left and right. I saw orange and pink abstract flora early on while slinging paint like I was panning for gold!
