Day 23: "30 in 30"

This painting depicts my favorite scene on our way home from the ranch, when we take the "back way," driving east on Highway 166 through the expansive Cuyama Valley--through cattle ranches, miles and miles of crops, orchards, and defunct oil fields as we head toward the 5 Freeway and the Central Valley. I am always gratified to be accompanied by the glorious display of the setting sun in the giant California sky, coupled with the backdrop of these beautiful interlocking mountains, which remind me of a giant jigsaw puzzle. I call this "Sunset, Cuyama Valley." 12" x 16"
