"If you go to Santa Barbara you might visit to this popular beach. Locals know it as "Hendries", but the offical name is Arroyo Burro Beach. The undulations of the rock bands remind me of ocean waves, frozen in time. Years of geological upheaval created this magnificent formation. Lucky scramblers have found fossil treasures in these layers. Winter birds enjoy soaring on the current created by the updraft from the beach. Often you can witness hang gliders launching for the cliffs above. This is a delightful place to walk, play and be in nature."
The Wildling Museum is excited to welcome Holly Hungett as its current Featured Local Artist and to offer her artwork online and in its Museum Gift Store.
Holly Hungett considers herself to be primarily a pleinair painter who loves being outside in all conditions, feeling the air, wind, smells and sounds.
“Often something in the scene grabs my attention and reminds me to be still and present with the earth, my body and breath. When that happens, I feel like I am in a heightened state of FLOW. These times don’t happen each time…, but when they do occur, they are magical and healing. I hope that some of that feeling of ‘stopping, breathing and being still’ will be transmitted through my paintings.”
She has lived in the Santa Barbara area with her husband since 1986 and cites a lifelong love for nature, as well as the long-term practice of yoga, movement and healing bodywork as influences in her artwork and sensitivities.
Holly’s artworks are available for pick-up only (from the Wildling Museum in Solvang, CA) after online purchase. All artwork is sold framed – the unframed image is included in the product listing only to show the actual artwork more clearly.
