I wanted to do at least one painting for my show that was quintessentially Santa Barbara, I think this pretty much sums it up. Turns out I could have included the Mission too (had no idea you could see it from the pier) but it was just too small and would have looked pretty awkward.
Thinking today that there has got to be a better way to arrange my studio. I feel like I'm always at my tiny desk, and my large drafting table goes almost unused. That will be my next project after this show goes up :)
This is the second painting I'm planning on entering for the Faulkner Gallery holiday show. My favorite part in this piece is the white tower on the right, but I can't remember what that building actually is...
On a side note, I watched Psych for the first time, since they put it on Netflix. I didn't know it was "set in" Santa Barbara, haha how fun!
I'm planning to submit this painting for the Faulkner Gallery holiday show. Everything has to be priced $300 or less. I think that's a great idea! Perfect for holiday shopping. The show starts December 2nd.
