View from Bull Valley Trail Staging Area, Crockett, ink & watercolor 5×8″

On the road home from the Port Costa adventure in my last post I spotted this barn and pulled off the road (this time actually managing to stay on the pavement!) into the Bull Valley Staging Area parking lot to sketch it.

When I finished I noticed a herd of cows grazing on the hill beside the parking lot and walked over to the fence to sketch them.  As you can see, I know nothing about cows and these gals weren’t holding still for me.

Then the strangest thing happened. A very old Asian man with very long whiskers and long hair, wearing only loose pants and flip-flops appeared in the cow pasture, walked up the hill through the cows and just kept on going until he disappeared. A guy with a camera was taking pictures of the cows and we looked at each other confused. We tried to figure out his story but could come up with nothing.

  1. Jana, i have been taking a look at your blog posts and work for some time and i love them. I too am an artist in watercolour painting and landscape plus occasionally do ink work when i get tired of watercolour! Your work has been an inspiration for new ideas for me and i will take on some of your tips when i create my own work. Have you thought about creating a book? My third book is about to be released and was a change from doing the normal paintings as i could add some text to the images which adds depth. Kindest, Jenny

    • Thank you very much Jenny. Your work is quite lovely. I’ve never been to England but I’ve seen the Cotswalds in one of my favorite shows, Doc Martin. Looks like a very interesting place and your paintings show it off well. Jana
