Winchester Mystery House - San Jose, CA March 2, 2017

After California's string of rainy days we finally had a bright sunny day. What better place to enjoy the brilliance than San Jose's Winchester Mystery House. Twenty-two artists enjoyed a glorious warm sunny day in the gardens of this famous site. There were many, many subjects to pick from: incredibly complex architecture and rooflines, fountains, statues, a beautiful flowering tulip magnolia tree, and a leaning fruit drying shed with a crooked door.
