According to his son, Fausto worked tirelessly to promote his talents. While living in Santa Barbara, Fausto created scenic backdrops for parades or plays. He donated his paintings for the annual city celebration, "La Fiesta."
He also received several important commissions during these years. One of the most important was the commission to paint the Mission Santa Barbara. The City of Santa Barbara presented his painted to the King and Queen of Belgium as a remembrance of their tour of California.
SANTA BARBARA MISSION. The City of Santa Barbara commissioned Fausto Tasca to paint a landscape featuring the Santa Barbara Mission. The painting was presented to the King and Queen of Belgium during a state visit. It is believed that the painting remains on display in Belgium.
DINING ROOM, MONTECITO. Fausto Tasca was commissioned to decorate the dining room of a mansion in Montecito. These two black and white photographs, also taken by Tasca, give us an indication of the elaborate nature of the decorative scheme. One watercolor sketch for the room decoration exists, but there are no other records of the project.
The project was executed in the early 1920's. The exact address of the mansion is not known.
AUTOCHROME ON GLASS. Fausto Tasca painted this mural for "La Fiesta," a city–wide celebration held annually in Santa Barbara. The mural was probably intended to be used as a banner for the Fiesta's parade, and as such was probably considered "disposable decoration."
Tasca documented this piece work using an early form of color photography, called an "autochrome."
This painting is now lost.
