Here is another interesting paintsite that I have passed hundreds of times and never knew it was there. Well done, organizers! Dick
It was a strange feeling to sit and paint this ancient adobe building
and outdoor oven while a few yards away traffic on freeway 280 was

I had no idea what this machine was until Dick figured out its function (later confirmed by a docent) --- a pump wagon. I think it's wonderful how, with old machines & buildings, that time and the inexorable laws of gravity trump those of perspective. Brad
