Clarence Hinkle's View

Clarence Hinkle's View 9x12

National Academy member Clarence Hinkle (1880-1860) lived in Santa Barbara
from 1935-1960. He taught at the Art Center in Los Angeles, and influenced many contemporary artists such as Santa Barbara OAK GROUP member, Meredeth Abbott.  

Last November I was invited to take my class to his former home/studio,  by it's current resident; artist, Priscilla Fossek, to view his studio (which is now her studio) and yard where he'd painted many a masterpiece. I wanted to give the class the opportunity to get close to the "spirit of a master," and paint from a perspective rarely seen by the general public and/or those who appreciate art history.
