Timeless Stanton Ranch

Timeless Stanton Ranch– 15×30″ oil on canvas–This part of Santa Cruz Island was ranch land for sheep at one time to fill the need for wool during the Civil War.  Later, cattle and wine grapes were cultivated. I painted the Stanton Ranch bunkhouse and the old chapel that sit on the site.  As an aside, I was fascinated to learn that when sheep escape and breed, they return to their wild form and start to grow horns.  As part of the ecological restoration, hunting tags were sold at one time for Island Big Horn Sheep.  Morning Light–Stanton Ranch Chapel–14×18″– oil on canvas
