Hollister

Since April 2020 I have posted on Facebook a painting each day as a brief diversion from the lockdowns and other bad news this year. Neglecting my weblog, I’ll post in the coming days some of my better posts.

“Hollister”, 30×40, oil on canvas

July 29,2020  Sweeping vistas, sweeping empty roads, scattered ranches, vineyards, farms, cows, rivers, coyotes, biking legends: Highway 25 south of Hollister, CA is one of our ‘go-to’ motorcycle rides. We ride it several times a year, and it is always a blast.

Most think of California as full of cities, traffic, homeless, hippies, fruits and nuts, but it doesn’t take much to get out into the ‘middle of nowhere’ where you can ride as free and as fast as you want. Such is Highway 25.

Today’s virus diversion painting from the ‘Studio Gaolbird”, is a piece from studies taken along the way over the years. I normally avoid painting old barns as I think they are a little cliche, but they are also good sellers, so here we go.

BTW, you can see a video of some of these rides here —
