“I’m not a painter by trade. I’m a printmaker and a drawer, so painting is a new adventure for me,” said Pamela Zwehl-Burke (front) while painting the bluffs with her friend Diane Handloser at Arroyo Burro Beach. The two have been painting together since 2009 after retiring from SBCC.
Usually the duo is a group of four women who playfully call themselves Les Quatre and get together once a week to paint different scenes around Santa Barbara. “I love being out in nature and really seeing things. We also get to talk to people who have nifty things to say. We’re just a group of pals who have a good time,” added Handloser.
