Sometime in 2008 I saw this wonderful scene, it was the circa 1940's style Greyhound bus station in Santa Barbara and I photographed it. Several years later I found the photo & decided to paint it. A few years after that I showed it in a solo show in Santa Barbara. It sold, the person who purchased it had come as a young man to SB on a Greyhound bus to make his fortune. He made that fortune and the painting brought back memories for him.
Today the Company's sign was taken down and the terminal was re-opened at
a new location near the AmTrack station.
It put's a smile on my face.
