Portola Pastures, oil 6x6. A few time I went out to paint at Portola Pastures, a horse ranch off of hwy 280, none of the outside paintings worked out, but I did take a great picture. The picture has been used many times. In fact a few students have also painted from the photo. This is very abstract and the orange is of my own creation, but the structure and shapes comes from the photo I took.
