This was the first time we painted at Maryknoll in the summer. The temperature was warm enough that we all sought shelter from the sun in the shade of the trees in the courtyard or in the beautiful garden areas.

the structure so prominently visible from I-280
|This house finch had a nest at the edge of the parking lot|
The Maryknoll property has a commanding view of I-280 and the Bay Area
all the way from San Jose to the south to Mount Diablo and Oakland to the north.
