"The Dancing Courthouse and Sagittarius", Santa Barbara Courthouse and Sunken Garden

"The Dancing Courthouse and Sagittarius"
30 x 40 inches
oil on canvas

I just finished this last night as Sagittarius drifted behind the Santa Barbara Courthouse Tower. There is something special about painting at night. Instead of watching tv or going to bed early, creating something expands your day and consciousness. Its like have more time than in a normal day. 

One cool thing about this one is that you can tell the time of night, time of year and location I painted just by all the info in the painting.
Let me know what you think!


  1. I'm reading "Van Gogh - The Life" right now and, of course, I thought of Starry Night.
    Wish I knew my astrology/astronomy better.

  2. Deep ... Sagittarius, also known as the "Teapot" ... that would have been 7 - 8 PM?

  3. I love this painting! Wish I had more wall might have been next!! Love your work!!
