A friend and I have a favorite road to paint on in Healdsburg, California, called Magnolia. While driving around there we spotted this old broken down set of barns and buildings set off by the spring mustard. The light was great and we stopped and were painting when thehe owner came by on his rv to check out what we were doing. He said he doesn't live there, but lives in town and just comes out there to spend some time. He welcomed us very warmly. I love the feel of this and could picture roosters and hens living there, even though they don't at the moment.
