A Few Places I've Been

Whether on vacation or a business trip, wherever I go, I'm constantly on the lookout for subjects to paint. Among the more common locations is Santa Barbara, where I went to college, later got married, and my sons were both born. My son, Charlie, also went to UCSB, where I visited when he was in school. At his outdoor graduation, I captured a heron in the lagoon next to the ceremony. I gave him the painting as a present and also used it on a catalogue cover.
