The Red Door
13x17
oil on panel

This painting had to be done twice. The first time was 100% unsuccessful. The second turned out OK. It was done for the cover story of the upcoming Montecito Magazine. The house is quite interesting, its the old stone mason cottage in the Riven Rock community of Montecito. I found that assignment really challenging, but like most challenging things in life, very rewarding in the end. Everything was so close up and intimate, personal to the current residents and perhaps no others. Nine paintings of the beautiful little sandstone home and surrounding area will be seen on the stands for six months. Check out the next issue of the Montecito magazine coming out in May 2010.
