12" X 16" Oil on Canvas This is one of the fishing boats down at Santa Barbara harbor that I see a lot on my visits there. A great looking older boat with lots of character. Here she is seen tied close to the fuel dock across from the Coast Guard cutter USCGC Blackfin.
I paint primarily landscapes in oils. My work is influenced by the early California impressionsist painters and a host of contemporary painters. I seek to capture light and atmosphere in my work and love the challenge.
I work both in the studio as well as en plein air.
I am a member of The California Art Club, Oil Painters of America and am also involved with the Coast Guard Art Program.
