The day this painting was created was crazy and amazing all at once. I got lost! At the top a steep hill, my car conked out in the driveway of someone’s home.

It wasn’t that of the people I called earlier! Thankfully, the actual owners were happy to have me paint their wonderful vista and sympathetic to my car issues.
