Santa Barbara Mission

Close ups

This is acrylic on gessoed watercolor paper approx 9.75 x 6.5 in.

Here is my entry for Dominique's moleskin. Her theme is gates...pathways...passages.
I thought this fit her theme perfectly...with the mission and illuminated cross symbolizing the most wonderful journey of all.

Hope you like this one, Dominique, and thank you for inviting me into this wonderful group of the Flying Moleskins.

The image for this painting comes from the A Day Not Wasted painting challenge for July.
It's hosted by a great photographer and artist, Lee Brown...check it out.


Isaiah 60:20 Your sun will never set again,
and your moon will wane no more;
the LORD will be your everlasting light,
and your days of sorrow will end.


  1. I saw this on his blog and wow! you've done a terrific job on it Dean.

  2. Dean, How sobering and well done. It does make me think of Calvery.

  3. Dean, this is another incredible piece for The Flying Moleskins, you have been busy!

  4. I am so blessed and I so appreciate your choice of Scripture for this post. Thank you again.

  5. Fantastic job, Dean. The colors and composition are wonderful.

  6. Two birds with one stone on this one, Dean. I thought Lee's photo was stunning and you've succeeded beautifully with capturing that elusive quality here. I love the skies, the almost ancient feel to this piece. Lucky Dominique!

  7. I like it! It could not be better

  8. Wonderful rendering Dean. Love it!!

  9. This is lovely, I happened to your blog by way of Dreama's blog - I like the way you apply your paint.
