Driftwood Beach Shack

beachshack-gleason

48″x36″– Acrylic on Canvas– I love beach shack architecture… this one was beautifully made with driftwood, palm fronds and the timbers from the old wave-eaten sea wall.  It is nicely decorated with a sandstone coffee table, a redwood log sofa that delivered itself on tides from Northern California and breathtaking views..  Shelter for any sea-loving soul who follows the trail down from the cliffs.  Free, wild, natural, public real estate: the very best kind– location, location. location…

The Lagoon Trail

15×30″ Acrylic–  Any UCSB students will know this spot… how lucky we were to get to walk out on this trail between classes.  There used to be a red fox who lived on this hill that Lauren and I would see on early morning runs here.  The sun was over a sea of stratus clouds when I started and within an hour the fog bank blew in, erasing the scene.
