Anapamu and Olive Streets, Downtown Santa Barbara

"Stop Sign at Anapamu and Olive"
8 x 10 inches
oil on linen panel

This view is right around the corner from my house. If for some reason I couldn't leave my neighborhood for a year, I would still not get bored of painting these trees. My friend was behind me while I was painting and I hadn't put the stop sign in yet. He was like "you gonna put that stop sign in?" I was like, "maybe I will", instantly thinking I shouldn't add it just because he asked. But I am really after the strong colors lately and a red stop sign is hard to ignore. Then he had the idea to put the other sign in on the other side of the street. Humm, didn't think of that, maybe I should have him around more often.
