A View from Carbon Canyon

A View at Carbon Canyon

On the northeast edge of Orange County, CA is a town called Brea.  Many years ago it was known mostly for the oil business around the area and a small pioneer town once called Olinda.  Some of the oil fields are still there, nestled in Carbon Canyon.  Part of the canyon is a regional park where many people now hike and ride their horses.

This painting was done at the very east end of the park where the trails drop down to a loop around a small hill.  The fenced in area is now a native plant garden.  Like many places in Orange County, the setting sun provides a particular golden glow that has been captured by many artists and photographers.  This is a beautiful area during certain times of the day and is full of history.
