Painting the Zanja (2nd day)

"Painting the Zanja" Following Citrus Ave to the East of Redlands is a little road named "Walnut". Walnut sits out among the beautiful rows and rows of orange trees that have not been uprooted as yet and hopefully will remain untouched.

This is the 2nd time I have painted this wonderful little spot in the past 2 years and I was very excited to go back. Today I chose the wooden bridge which had the most contrast in color leading out to the beautiful vista of the San Bernardino Mountains. This part of the Zanja which means ditch or trench has some water flowing through. The owner of the property says it is actually run off from the orange groves that surround the property. Also in talking with one of the owners that live on this magnificent property we learned there was a sighting of a bob cat just a couple days prior to us being there. In saying that we all made sure not to venture too far out and stay relatively close to one another for the painting session. Although he reassured us that we were safe, we just didn't want to be sorry.
Until next time, ENJOY THE ART. Terry d. Chacon

Giclee prints and notes are available from this original plein air painting.
