Gateway to the Coast

16×20″ oil on canvas– I hiked to up above the Gaviota Tunnel to paint this one.  It is always welcoming to drive through this pass and see the ocean again when approaching Santa Barbara from the north.  The marine layer was hiding the background until the last half hour of the painting session when it folded back like a cloud blanket to reveal the sea.
