Someone asked why I mostly have paintings of East Beach. Well, the answer is we usually stay across the street at the Motel 6, which as I understand it once cost $6 per night.

The thing is, when you are a painter and you are traveling, you really HAVE TO GO PAINT or you will go insane but you don’t want to wreck everyone else’s vacation. I try to compromise.

So a typical Santa Barbara painting day is, I get up just before dawn and try to be on the beach as the sun is coming up, and then I have a solid five hours to paint before we move on to lunch or wine tasting in the Santa Ynez Valley. So I mostly, but not always, just walk across the street to East Beach.

And I could probably paint on this beautiful beach every single day.
