On a recent weekend trip up to the Morro Bay area I stumbled upon a few paintings by Dan Berkland. A small art gallery on Cambria's Main Street called The Vault houses a collection of his wonderfully warm and "glowy" landscapes. I particularly loved his paintings of trees.
He works mainly in oils and his subject matter varies. I enjoy the smoothness to his paintings, the rounded edges and soft lines. His San Francisco skylines remind me of hard candy or looking through a slightly warped glass window.
