On our trips hubby dose his best to take me to the CA. Mission for it is my goal to paint all 21 Missions someday. So with this trip we saw 3 more Missions (San Luis Obispo Mission, Mission San Miguel Archangel and Mission San Antonio) that I can mark off my list plus we also saw one Ca. National Historic Landmark call "Friends of the Adobes/Rios Caledonia Adobe" and that is what I want to talk about.
I am a very friend person and I can talk a blue streak when I want too but when it come to talking about my art work that is when I tend to clam up so it was a BIG SURPRISE to me that when hubby and I went into the adobe gift shop and as I look around I saw that there was no items of the Adobe for sell. We found out the gift shop ran on commission items only.
So before I knew what I was saying, I ask the gift shop lady if she wouldn't mind if I did a painting of the Adobe and sold prints, writing card, bookmarks, and other small items in the gift shop. To my surprise she said yes, that she would love that, for she has been wanting items of the Adobe in the gift shop for a long time.
We agree that I would come up with something and this was all great news until I came home put all my pictures on my computer and after a couple of days later my computer crash and I was dead in the water. So I sent my computer out to be fix and low and be hold I got really ill which set me back on my goal for the painting. But on Jan 3rd I was just starting to feel better so I drew out the "Rios Caledonia Adobe" in my sketch book and on the 4th of Jan I trace the drawing on tracing paper to place on my 12"x24" canvas as y'all can see here in this picture.
