Soffel Farms

"Soffel Farm Store" 9 x 12 oil on canvas by Terry d. Chacon

Painted this painting this morning. This cute little farm is down the street from where I live and is surrounded by orange groves. I pass it all the time. They sell honey, avocados, oranges, lemons, just about everything. I took out all the signs and fencing that surround this cute little place as I felt they were an eye sore for what I wanted to capture. Sometimes you have to look past all the stuff to visualize a painting.

Another beautiful part of this particular setting is the beautiful back drop of the San Bernardino Mountains. Fresh snow on the left, this is Lake Arrowhead area. The light was so beautiful on the lower mountains, the sun made them shimmer in the distance.

This is a high contender for the exhibit at the RAA and Redlands Conservancy Open Air show, coming up next weekend. I will have to see if I can get out again next week before take in day.

Until Next Time, Enjoy the ART! Terry d. Chacon
