Original Oils by Michael Silbaugh

I have always had a passion for painting and so from a very early age I lived my dream, winning my first award in a third grade art show in the Los Angeles county fair 1953. I went on to win awards at shows in my high school in Winchester, Kentucky. In my early 20's, I worked for different reproduction studios in and around Hollywood and Burbank, in San Fernando valley, CA. under artist studio pen names: Bartuck, Travis, and Silva. In 1966 - 1967, I worked under my own artist pen name Silva , during my stay in Safford, AZ, and in the years of 1967 - 1971 in Santa Barbara, CA. In 1971 my wife and I moved to Santa Cruz, CA. A sudden crisis in 2017 propelled me to start painting again with renewed vigor by resuming my art career.

The ocean, especially Monterey Bay, has always inspired me to paint but so has Hawaii with its tumultuous volcano eruptions. My love for western saloons and landscape has also made their face on many of my canvases. The landscape of Monterey, and the vineyards gracing our state as well as in Italy has made their way into my art as well.

  • Aerial Panorama of Bixby Bridge, Big Sur oil painting by Michael Silbaugh. Most Iconic View of Big Sur is Bixby Creek Bridge.  Post card view of rugged cliff side with sweeping views of the Pacific. One of the most photographed bridges next to the the Golden Gate bridge, Bixby Bridge is a landmark in California. Bixby Bridge. 714’ of graceful architecture completed in 1932. Imagine the elements this bridge has survived in the last 10 yrs, let alone the past 80+! The concrete span, one of the highest bridges of its kind in the world, soars 260 feet above the bottom of a steep canyon carved by Bixby Creek.  The Big Sur coastal road is my favorite scenic highway, for a day drive stopping in at one of our favorite Big Sur restaurants Nepenthe, or staying at Ventana Inn or Deetjen's Inn.
