This painting was done in the first year of my daily painting project, 2007. I've always liked its simplicity of design and clarity of color. This is Mission San Miguel, an adobe church built in 1797, near California's central coast. Sadly, a short time after I did the painting an earthquake severely damaged the building, opening two vertical cracks from ground to eave on the end wall. Other buildings in the compound were also damaged. A multi-million dollar restoration project is underway to preserve this irreplaceable treasure.
