Artist's description:

Abstract landscape of a ghost town in California called Hornitos by Chaline Ouellet. Hornitos lies in a valley in Mariposa County which is near Yosemite National Park. the town was once part of the California Gold Rush and was home to various outlaws and horse thieves. The name is Spanish for 'little ovens' due to the ground being so dry, rocky and hard that people buried their dead in what look like little stone and adobe ovens on the surface of the ground. Joaquin Murrieta sometimes called the Robin Hood of the El Dorado, was known to frequent the town in the gold rush era of the 1850's. Tunnels were dug that ran from banks, to hotels and saloons by the various bank robbers that came to town.The white church on the hill in the distance was made famous by Ansel Adams. The painting captures the clear blue sky and the dry golden foothills in late spring covered with oak trees. In the foreground a road that leads over the hills into the tiny town of Hornitos. Farm and ranch lands fill the valley. Acrylic on Gallery wrap canvas,
