It's been at least a year since I've done a painting of the courthouse. This commission was a welcome reminder of one of my favorite buildings, something about all that white is just so fun.

I'm so glad that my husband and I decided to get married in Santa Barbara County. That meant we had to get our marriage license from this courthouse, couldn't ask for anything prettier :)

I had a fantastic day at the craft fair here in Carpinteria yesterday :) I kind of wish I could have hired someone to sit at my table for me, I just always feel a little awkward selling my paintings....maybe because it's something so personal (at least to me). Or because I don't want people to feel like they have to say something nice just because I'm sitting there. But all in all a great day :)
I moved all of my paintings over to our new place, I had so much fun filling up those shelves! My new studio room is so nice I never want to leave it :)

Also, if you have a Trader Joe's near you, you have to try their Spicy Soy and Flaxseed Tortilla Chips. They're full of fiber and omega 3's and they're delicious!...
The Santa Barbara Courthouse is one of my favorite subjects to paint. I love the color of the shadows on such a white building. I got up extra early this morning to paint, because the rest of my day with be spent in LA, watching the filming of the Glee finale! My best friend acquired free tickets, it's going to be awesome!
