This painting was begun and nearly finished during the Santa Barbara painting workshop.The Santa Barbara harbor is beautiful in the early morning. I love painting it from the harbor vista point.. The view is exquisite. I tried to imagine what the Santa Barbara harbor was like in 1910. So I left out a few (hundred) boats and made little row boats instead of the modern cacophony of boats and fifty story cruise ships often seen from this viewpoint.

I love painting the beaches of SantaBarbara and the entire stateof California. You will find many more of my beach paintings like this one available for sale on the painting pages of my website.
