It's not hard to get inspired from nature living in beautiful Santa Barbara! Especially this time of the year.
Santa Barbara Island
The smallest of the Channel Islands is deceptive. From a distance, this one-square-mile island may look a bit barren. Upon closer examination, the island offers more than one would expect-an island of resting elephant seals, blooming yellow flowers, tumbling Scripps's murrelet chicks, and rich cultural history. Santa Barbara Island is the center of a chain of jewels, a crossroads for people and animals.
On a clear day the view of the islands are spectacular
In my landscape portfolio I have painted 5 views at different times of the day.
Yes I am grateful to live here.
