Filling the spiritual well...nothing like a beach walk
Some photos from a wonderful blustery beach walk in Santa Barbara, CA. Nothing fills my well and rejuvinates my spirit than a walk outdoors near the ocean or in nature.
Short video clips on You Tube from how to clean your brushes after painting with acrylics to sneak peaks inside workshops. New videos being added regularly.
