Old Man's Farm

                                                  12"x16" Oil on Linen Panel

A friend and I painted this  farm scene in Templeton, Ca. a year or so ago.  At the time, it was owned and worked by a very old man who lived alone on the property.   He has since passed away, and I believe the property is awaiting sale now.  It will almost certainly be torn down when sold, and will be one less remnant of the picturesque past of our farm country.   I sometimes wonder if plein air artists in years to come will look at condo developments and malls as wonderful landscape subjects          Mike
