The Lindisfarne Castle was built in the 1550's, around the same time that the Priory from yesterday's painting went out of use. They actually used stones from the Priory to build the castle. The castle itself is pretty small, but it sits on the highest part of the island, on a volcanic mound known as Beblowe Craig.

I used to live in Santa Barbara, it was beautiful, and I never had to drive in snow. It was also cloudy a lot, hence the terms "May gray" and "June gloom", this is a painting of one of those days.

I really like how this painting turned out so I think it will be number 2 in the series for that upcoming show. It is also my favorite Santa Barbara courthouse painting that I've done :)
