This location is along the Hwy 1, Spring Ranch in Little River CA.

I painted “551. To Mendocino II”

This was same location but facing North.

This time I painted facing South.


I don’t know how many times I drove this location.

When I lived in Mendocino, facing north was my way home.

Now I live in Santa Rosa, so facing south is my way home.


After rain, fresh grasses cover ground. It’s spring.

Sun is going down. So shadow is long.

The oldest barn has been standing there since 1864. So many histories went by.

Everything is fresh and exciting for our lives and I will cherish this scene.
