Old Lakeville Road # 3 - Petaluma, CA.

I drove along Lakeville Highway and turned into Old Lakeville Road # 3.

That's right.... there are three roads to choose from but # 3 is the longest road...with great landscape views of barns and farm animals.

i immediately pulled over to admire the ponies! But just behind, I noticed a large group of sheep beginning to come up and over the grassy hillside.

So I started setting up along the fence and comfortably between two eucalyptus trees.
 The sheep were long gone by the time I finished up this painting, but sure was nice they kept us company throughout the afternoon.
