"Santa Barbara Sunset"

This beautiful sunset is so typical for Santa Barbara.

We are planning a visit to a faraway friend, and want to give something that would represent our lifestyle. I went to my large file of reference images and selected this for a small 8 x 10 inch painting to carry with us.

I used the same scene, but with figures, for an earlier larger painting "Sunset Stroll." This painting is cropped closer in, has more detail, no figures, and has slighty different color rendering.
