For many years I have participated as an invited artist in the annual I Madonnari Street Painting Festival. Held every Memorial Day weekend at the Santa Barbara Mission, the festival benefits the Children’s Creative Project, a division of the Santa Barbara County Education Office that brings visual and performing arts programs to the schools. In 2009, I was the featured artist. My friend Jessie Altstatt helped, and together we created the 12×16-foot street painting below depicting an underwater ocean scene in the Santa Barbara Channel, featured on posters, t-shirts, greeting cards and other merchandise sold at the festival.
