Hill Side Oaks
This is a story that may amuse you and inspire you as well. When I first moved to California from Missouri I set up my painting gear in the barn. We were in the process of getting plans together to build a house so the barn was fine for painting until the cold days of winter set in. I was desperate to paint but where was the question? Then I saw the horse trailer and thought it might work out as a warm dry spot to paint and moved in. Yes, a horse trailer became my studio and it was a super studio while I waited for a real studio to be built. So if you ever complain about not having a place to paint think of me in a two horse slant horse trailer. I look back and think of it as a fun time and painting in a horse trailer made for many, "A Painting Day".
