Commissions from nearly a decade ago

I was over at UC Davis hospital yesterday and as soon as I stepped inside this building these two paintings caught my eye.  Lo and behold, and much to my surprise and delight,  these were my paintings from nearly a decade ago when I was commissioned to do these Colusa landmarks for a UC Davis clinic up in Colusa.  Maybe the Colusa clinic closed and these paintings were brought back to Sacramento for the new building which I had entered.

So here we are  back nearly 10 years ago.  I distinctly remember driving up to Colusa to photograph these buildings and the challenge it was because the Courthouse view was covered  in tree canopy.

Colusa High School, a very beautiful, very long horizontal brick structure.
