This 2011 commission for Santa Barbara’s Cottage Hospital depicts a panoramic view of Santa Barbara to the east(left), the Channel Islands to the south(center), and UCSB to the west(right) from Goleta Beach. Because the panels were so large, Marcia painted a quarter scale maquette on location and worked from the maquette to paint the large commission.
