Looking for Oil 9x12 original oil on linen board


This is a site we don't see much of in Orange County anymore.  Growing up in Anaheim and Santa Ana, these oil drilling machines were an everyday part of the landscape.

I remember seeing these oil things when I was little. I hadn't realized they've disappeared little by little until I saw this painting.
Having recently finished Payne's book on composition I'm noticing the S line that leads the eye in to the center of interest. Nice.
