Pastel Painting by Carrie Givens

Painting en plein-air in different media,
these 3 artists share an appreciation for Santa Barbara's incredibly inspiring beauty.

Carrie Givens uses a palette rich in color and detail in her lovely pastels. As an owner of organic farm in Goleta, she has plenty of subjects to work fromů still life's of fruits and vegetables, and landscapes. In addition to these, she has recently completed a series from Baja.

Watercolor Painting by Mike Rider

Laurel Mines paints brightly colorful oils. She exudes confidence in her realistic local landmarks in town, seascapes bold brushstrokes and compositions.

Mike Rider uses a similarly colorful palette with his transparent watercolors. A self-taught artist, Mike is adept at painting the favorite local beaches and the harbor, conveying a happy mood through his beautifully fresh and crisp detail work This "bouquet" of works is refreshingly enjoyable and uplifting, and indeed worth a look.
