Quite a man! The article said Mary and Barney moved by Montecito, actually to Rincon, below Carpinteria. Unfortunately, his fabulous book after (and about) rehab did a nose dive when he started drinking again. RIP to a wonderful man.

I knew Barnaby for close to 40 years. He painted a lovely portrait of my father looking terribly important. A true renaissance man. How talented he was to master so many artistic interests.A master. He will be dearly missed by all of us who were lucky enough to know him. RIP old boy.
