Description Near the village of Cambria, in central California, is this rugged beach with a mile long wooden boardwalk designed for viewing.In December, just before the holidays, we visited Cambria to see the decorations. The weather was threatening, with occasional drops of rain. While walking along the boardwalk at Moonstone Beach, I took photographs, from which this painting was developed.The woman started off to be my wife. But as the painting developed, she became this unknown person. She is clad warmly against the cold and damp, gazing at the sea breaking over the rocks, and at a lone bird flying by. The bird was actually in one of my photographs. Also, notice the faint footmarks in the sand showing where a solitary jogger passed earlier.
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.
