Yes, it's urban!

Ok,  I know this is not an urban scene,  but
it's right in the the middle of what is urban
near my home.  Amazingly,  many people don't 
even know this place is down the street until
they see one of my paintings and ask where 
I painted it.  John Singer Sargent painted
lots of what was around him including subjects
like this.  I was definitely influenced by him.

"Carpinteria Bluffs" Oil on linen,  7"x9"

I love painting the Coast where I live.  California 
has some of the most beautiful coastline anywhere in the 
World.   From it's white sand beaches in the south to the 
rocky cliffs of the north there is endless subject matter
for the Plein Air painter.
