From the road, I saw some eucalyptus trees that I wanted to photograph. I walked up the hill through an orange grove and once I got back there, I discovered this really cool old red barn. I managed to take a couple of photos before the rancher's dogs chased me down through the orange grove and back to my truck.
I am intrigued by the character of old buildings, especially old barns. This is the 5th painting of this particular one. The previous 4 are in private collections throughout California.
