November Summer in Santa Barbara


The first week of November felt like summer. This warm sunny day reminded me why I live in Santa Barbara. From the Douglas Preserve I could see up coast, to UCSB and beyond. The day also brought a video crew out shooting for a local tourism organization. They asked to take footage of me while painting. Self consciously I said yes -- worrying that my butt looked XXL on video and wondered if my pony tail was attractively arranged. My hair takes on a life of it's own when I am out painting!
I've seen the footage and it looked better than I expected. Thank goodness I was in silhouette. I'll let you know when the video goes live, you can tell me if my butt looks fat. Really, you can tell me.
