Day 15: "30 in 30"

This painting depicts The Old Adobe, a historic structure on Highway 166 in the Los Padres National Forest near Santa Maria, just a ways down the road from the Blue Moon Ranch.  The roof of the Adobe has fallen in, and there is talk of restoring it, but for now, the house inhabits a serene place among a grove of trees with wild buckwheat and wild oats growing all around it.  It was probably built in the late 1800's, and served as some pioneering family's ranch house.  I love to visit here, especially in the morning when the sun is just cresting the mountains and casting long shadows across the house.
