"Waterfront from Stearn's Wharf", Santa Barbara, California

"Waterfront from Stearn's Wharf", 24x60 inches, oil on canvas, sold

Well, I made it back from Europe safe and inspired. My last day I spent 4 hours studying masterpieces in Musée d'Orsay in Paris. I had been here before but not as a plein air landscape painter. I've logged thousands of hours observing and expressing in the past 10 years. My how my mind has changed! Paintings I clearly remember not understanding, now suddenly makes sense. I can see how former masters struggled with the same problems I do. The monumental scale of some great pieces made me realize I need to go even bigger and grander and more me. I feel like I have something to add to this great community of artists.  
Here my first painting day back I got to dive into cool pacific happiness. I love this place!
