Feather River Land Trust Paint Out


This is the great old historic barn at the 'Heart K Ranch', near Taylorsville, California. The ranch is part of the Feather River Land Trust, and was the site of a fundraiser and paint out in September. I painted the barn from a distance in the early morning, and up close in the mid afternoon. The ranch is located in a beautiful valley, once the tribal home of the some of California's original people, the Mountain Maidu, and then by pioneer rancher in the late 1800's. I was thrilled to be able to participate in raising funds to ensure that the land is always protected from developmet.
