The I Madonnari Street Painting Festival was back in action at the Santa Barbara Mission! It was so great to be back together with fellow artists, sponsors, festival organizers and volunteers – plus the 30, 000+ people who showed up over the three-day weekend! And the sun came out, too! ☀️

The festival takes place every year over Memorial Day weekend and is a fundraiser for the Children’s Creative Project (CCP). The CCP provides art programs (visual, music, dance, theatre) to more than 50,000 school children annually.

My 12×12-foot street painting this year featured a female Anna’s Hummingbird with a Matilija Poppy and Coral Bells (Heuchera), and once again I was fortunate to have Corbu Construction as my sponsor!
