Foxen Canyon Road

Now that we have had a blast of rain and April has arrived, I am itching for a little road trip.  I’ve been going up and down California for years.  I like to get out the map (yes I am old fashioned and prefer a map to GPS) and look for new roads to try.  I prefer using the detailed Delorme road atlases.  A few years ago my “discovery” was Foxen Canyon Road.  It parallels the 101 between Buellton and Santa Maria.  It’s a windy, car commercial road, through lush green hills covered with poppies.  The little trip inspired some small paintings, including the ones shown above.
