This vibrant scene of a sea view from the flagstone patio of a hillside villa was painted by Sue Slater (1960-), the well-known, listed Santa Barbara, California artist. A professional artist for over 30 years, Ms. Slater works in acrylics on canvas and uses blocks of primary colors, subtly shaded, so all the details stand out, appearing almost three-dimensional. Her style is modern impressionism and it's delightful. The canvas is mounted on a wooden stretcher and unframed. It measures 8 inches by 10 inches and is in excellent condition. The artist's painted signature is at lower left.
Born in San Jose, California, the artist obtained art degrees in her home state and in Massachusetts. After spending eight months in Europe painting and studying, she established her studio in Santa Barbara in 1987. Her works have been shown in many juried solo and group exhibits and also in publications, including being featured on the cover. Her cheerful, vivid painting will brighten your home and mood anywhere it's placed.
