Day 40: Barbara's Fishtrap Restaurant

One of the landmarks of the coastside area where I live near El Granada, CA is the classic seafood restaurant known as Barbara's Fishtrap Restaurant in Pillar Point Harbor, near the Mavericks surf beach.  They serve the freshest and most delicious seafood in the area, in my view and offer a salty quaint admosphere.  The building itself is a rusty red and has a distinctive large painted sign.  I've tried to paint this building a number of times, rather unsuccessfully.
This morning our Plein Air Painting group assembled in this area and I gave it another go.  Here is today's version of Barbara's.


  1. I like your painting of the seafood parlor (love that word, "parlor") more than the real thing! Captured the fun spirit of the place.

  2. Thanks, Susan, coming from you that is lovely praise.
