Santa Barbara Art Show

For the last couple of years it has been hard on the local artists who show at this event, lot of drop outs. I began a couple of months ago and felt like things were turning around. Now all of a sudden lots of new artists have joined, I guess I will have to arm wrestle my buddies for a space!
I try to paint while I am at the show and time flies!

Nothing like twice in a day

Second Blog today. These are my paintings I started in Lone Pine. Yes I know , in plein air a painting is usually completed. Six in a couple of days is pushing it in my opinion. Especially when there is hiking, exploring, eating and drinking going on! I have finished them and will post tomorrow.

Time Flies...

More photo to come on our last art show. My new friend Sharon Shock has been on fire! Sold a painting at show and two beauties today in my shop in Carpinteria.
I have a lot to learn about Photographing and cropping, Be nice!!!

Memorial day weekend

Art Along the Creek exhibit was a great success! Our SCAPE art show along Mission Creek raised over $23,000. for creek restoration and Phoenix of Santa Barbara. I will get some photos posted this week of all our award winners. A special thank you to all of those people who make a difference in our world.
