Ray’s Ranch

Ray’s Ranch is a turn-of-the-century small ranch with barns, corrals and horses situated right in the outskirts of Los Gatos. The Los Gatos Plein Air Group was painting there, it was a beautiful day, so time to load up the Harley and head over. It is only about 30 minutes from the house, traffic across Silicon Valley (AKA Santa Clara Valley) wasn’t bad, and I arrived there about 9. There were already half a dozen painters out, and by the time noon rolled around about a dozen were busily painting. Below are a few shots of the area.

A quick little study of the same barn, but a little more intimate.

I took more (and probably better) pictures, but for some reason they didn’t take with my little ‘wearable’ camera.
