Coastal Scene on Fence

Do you want to paint large but are short of wall space? Look outdoors. This is a typical coastal Santa Barbara scene that I painted on the fence between my house and my neighbor's garage. I got the idea when I was visiting friends having drinks on their patio overlooking Santa Barbara. I may never have such a view but I can have the essence. Actually I got the idea earlier when a customer commissioned me to paint the view from their picture window so they could hang the painting next to that window. When I asked why they wanted a painting of the same view their response was that it is often foggy with no view and half the time it is night with a different view. So even those with a view sometimes rely on a painting. The added benefit is that it forced me to paint looser (my latest goal) since it is viewed from a distance.
