Olive St and Donze Ave, Downtown Santa Barbara

"Moon Over Olive Street"
8 x 8 inches
oil on gesso panel

Its been tough to get in some painting time with all the weather we have been having lately. Last night at 9:15 when all the house was asleep I went outside for something and found it to be beautiful and clear with a full moon over head. I had to go out and paint. I decided to just walk out from my house with my easel instead of driving somewhere. About a 100 yards from my door I came across this driveway illuminated by the moonlight. Its one of those great downtown houses that has the garage on the side at the end of the driveway. The occupant came home while I was painting it from across the street and immediately turned off their living room lights. I kept thinking that they where watching me from inside, wondering what the hell I was doing out there with my headlamp and gear. Its kinda weird to be the creepy stranger on the street...
