The week was wonderful, the weather cooperated, my hostess was gracious and it helped to have done this before, so I knew the lay of the land.
Tuesday I stayed at the wonderful Wind Wolves Preserve from dawn until sunset. Learn more about it at http://www.wildlandsconservancy.org/preserve_windwolves.html
It was so good to see all the living greens all around Kern County. I pushed myself to paint a 16 x 20  at Tejon Ranch and I am glad I did.
