Santa Barbara, Montecito California painting benefit – Before the Wildfire

November 15th, 2008

“Santa Barbara Glow” – near Cielito Rd – acrylic on 140# watercolor paper
7.5 x 11 inches

A portion of the proceeds of this painting will be donated to the Santa Barbara County Chapter of the Red Cross.

One of my artist friends and blog readers, Timaree, just reminded me in a previous comment that I have probably painted some areas of Santa Barbara and Montecito that have been affected by the wildfires. She is right. I know that this painting is from one of the evacuation areas. What it looks like now, I don’t know. It is from an area near Cielito St. above Santa Barbara. I know because I often make notes in my sketchbook of locations I especially like, so that I can return to them in different seasons.

Now I really want to get back to this open land – and hope it escaped devastation. This is a beautiful part of California, so typical of oak-studded foothills and woodlands. It breaks my heart to think that it might be a while before nature recovers, as she always does, and carpets the hillsides with fresh growth.

This painting is still in my collection and I will be posting several more in the next few days. If anyone would like to purchase this or one of the others I will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Santa Barbara County Chapter of the Red Cross.

  1. This is a really nice picture. Sharing a part of the proceeds is a very nice thing to do. I just can’t believe how much damage these fires are causing.

  3. This just glows. Those fires are such a tragedy.
