Butterfly Beach is one of my favorite beaches in Santa Barbara. I was inspired to paint this after a walk on this beautiful afternoon.
The sides are painted in a continuation of the work so it can be propped in a bookcase as is or framed later if desired. Makes a great gift! Signed lower right.
I am a contemporary impressionist oil painter and I paint nearly every day from direct observation, sketches, memory and imagination. I live in beautiful Santa Barbara, California and am inspired by the landscape and architecture surrounding me but also enjoy painting still lifes, figuratives and abstracts. My approach to painting is a combination of practice, passion, perseverance and faith. I try to rely on my instinct and intuition as much as possible. I believe in the quote by Picasso, "Inspiration exists but it has to find us working.". I am happy to say my work has been included in many juried exhibitions, galleries, and in private collections internationally.
