Carquinez Barn

This barn was the first thing that I saw from the upper parking area of the Carquinez Strait Regional Park. The green hills are rapidly becoming the golden hills.

I have been wanting to find another barn to paint. I think they represent a rapidly fading life style of a family working together for a common objective in a community of such families that support each other. I have to think of my wife's home town, and the Old Order River Brethren and other Brethren farming families there. They really know what community is.
