Description The central square was full of young people sitting, drinking, talking, visiting with friends, or just viewing the activity at the many small tables spread outside the surrounding cafs. The spring sunshine was warm and encouraging the Plain trees around the square to bud out to make a green and yellow arbor over the scene. We were touring France and had just arrived at Avignon on this Saturday morning. As we joined the crowd, we sipped our own drinks and took photographs to record the event for this painting.
Peter Worsley, Santa Barbara, California Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement Born in England, Peter Worsley came to California in 1956, and to Santa Barbara in 1970. His serious work in the visual arts began in 1996, after retiring from some fifty years in industry. Though largely self-taught, he continues to study with some of the wonderful artists who teach locally.
Always, he has a strong desire to include people in his paintings. To him, people add life. After initially choosing to work in watercolor, Peter gradually introduced opaque gouache into his work, producing many gouache paintings over several years. From these early struggles, Peter has evolved to where today he paints ordinary people doing everyday things at interesting places, in a Social Realism style, using oil on canvas.
Active in the local art community, Worsley is a Past President of both the Santa Barbara Art Association and the Goleta Valley Art Association, a member of the Santa Barbara Studio Artists, Associate Member of Oil Painters Of America, and a Founder and former Director of Santa Barbara Visual Arts Alliance.
