“I always wanted to do this; when I would see someone carving stone, I’d feel a pang of jealousy,” said Albert Hannon as he carved an English racing horse out of white onyx at Shoreline Park. Hannon, who has been a stone sculptor for about 10 years, believes it is an art form one should practice their entire life. “When I began doing this, I finally started seeing everything through the eyes of an artist,” he said.

Jane Hurd painted a landscape at Butterfly beach with a group of women who began getting together after their adult-education classes ended. Hurd is a retired medical illustrator who now paints full-time. She relocated from New York City about a year ago after teaching a workshop in Santa Barbara. “I went back to New York, tied up all my loose ends, and moved right out here. I love it; there are so many things to paint!” she said.
