Rick Garcia
Rick Garcia is an award winning Santa Barbara based artist who works in oils on both canvas and board. He received his undergrad degree from UC Berkeley and followed it up with formal training in biological illustration at California College of Arts and crafts in Oakland, California.

Born in 1953, he spent his early years soaking up the beauty of the back country near his grandparents’ ranch in Sebastapol California. The vision of these undeveloped vistas have remained strong throughout the years and continues to be an important influence in his work to date. Relying on his love of nature, his interest in the California Plein Air movement as well as his commercial training in realism he has created a blend that is his own unique vision. Rick had been working as a nationally renowned illustrator and designer for a wide variety of clients until 2000 when he started pursuing his personal artistic interests. Maynard Dixon, Ray Strong, Thomas Hart Benton, Bjorn Rye, Russell Chatham and Joseph Raphael are among the many artists he has studied and admired.

His work can be found at many fine galleries throughout California including The Waterhouse gallery in Santa Barbara, California and Young’s Gallery in Los Olivos.

Paul Panossian
Trained in traditional classical painting, Paul’s personal artwork is characterized by intense color, sophisticated composition and a painterly technique that has been immediately recognized by many art afficionados, collectors and critics. He has received numerous awards through the years in juried national and international exhibitions. He received the American Art Collector Award of Excellence for his painting California Gold at the California Art Club 97th Annual Gold Medal Juried Exhibition 2008.

Paul Panossian has earned international acclaim for his depiction of water and intimate portrayals of of the sea. As a native Californian, Paul’s direct experience and intimacy with the ocean has empowered him to evoke an emotional response in his paintings that has been described as timeless. Each painting and subject is viewed as an adventure, each one different from the next. His artwork is currently being represented by Waterhouse Gallery in Santa Barbara, California and New Masters Gallery in Carmel, California. He is currently a Patron Painting Member of the California Art Club, an Associate Member of Oil Painters of America, and a member of the American Impressionist Society.

Looking for subtleties in nature that may go unnoticed, PaulPanossian’s impressionist paintings celebrate the beauty of our countryside and the scenic wonders that surround us.

“I strive to communicate my impression of unique ephemeral moments through paint and brush. My paintings reflect a fascination with nature and the beauty that God has created around us.”
