As an artist I'm always attracted to the way light expresses itself and how it touches everything it falls upon. These three photos capture the essence of the different types of lighting I observed while I was in Santa Barbara. The beach at sunset with its' natural light of soft and misty corals and grays; the Christmas lights of a Rue de Lille vignette which to me mimics the look of all the many festive lights we saw on everything in and around town; and a glimpse of the candle light tour at the Mission captures the honey-like warmth and glow of the Spanish colonial architecture that abounds in Santa Barbara's historic downtown.
