"The east end of Goleta Beach changes with each tidal surge. At times of high tide the whole shore disappears under water. Even in the few hours while painting, the beach the tides changed considerably . It is a fun challenge to capture one moment in time. "
This painting was started plein-air (on location) and completed in my home kitchen studio.
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.
