I am please to share with you that I am now represented by Chalk Gallery in Carpinteria. Owners Duane and Liz operate the gallery Friday - Monday from 11 - 4, or by appointment. For those of you from out of the Santa Barbara area, Carpinteria is a great town to stop for food or a beach stroll. Visit Chalk at 963 Linden Avenue, 805-220-6264. It is a small space with lots of wonderful art to see. There are also many cute shops nearby.
One of my new paintings, Fall Morning Beach Walk, is currently showing at the gallery. This painting was completed on location at Goleta beach. It is a favorite spot for local painters. It think it is a great location to paint because the slough is changeable depending on the tide, time of year, and weather conditions. Sometime it is serene and easy to wade ankle deep across the outlet and other times it can rush like a river making it treacherous. Just past the point, which is a knob of tar, the coastline continues unobstructed (at low tide) all the way to Hope Ranch beach. Its a beautiful place.
