The Santa Barbara County Court House

A few years ago, my sister in law/web master gave me a few postcard sized photos of the beautiful Santa Barbara County Court House to work from to create a larger painting that she and her husband could display in their home. They were married in that court yard, and it was one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever attended. (Even Good Morning America was there!) Well, I held onto those small photos for a while, and decided I'd finally give the project a shot. With the help of Jeff Watts at the Watts Atelier, I was able to project a larger version onto a small canvas, then paint an even larger one in time to present it to her for Christmas. I can't wait to see how she frames it!
