Blue Moonrise over Ellwood

This is a big plein air painting I made of the rising blue moon last month.  I was out painting with my buddy artist Chris Potter.  We both have dozens of our paintings hanging this month at the Sojourner Cafe on Canon Perdido.  If you haven’t eaten there, I recommend the Gingered Tofu Wonton Pillows…  And you can’t leave without a vegan chocolate carrot cookie.  Moon and Quickdraw - 1

The Sun Coming up and Going Down

I loved painting the first sun hitting Cathedral Peak (acrylic on Canvas 18×24) and the last glow dissolving from the bluffs at UCSB Campus Point (acrylic on birch panel 9×20).   These and many other paintings will be on display in Los Olivos 29th Annual Quick Draw Arts Festival next weekend.  It will be a fun day…  come hang out!   (Dates and times below.) CathedralPeakCampusPoint
